Republican attorney claims SEEC is dragging its feet

HARTFORD, Conn. – The Newington resident who filed an election complaint against Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in October is suing the State Elections Enforcement Commission for not completing its investigation.

Ben Ancona, of Newington, filed a civil lawsuit against the SEEC Wednesday in Hartford Superior Court alleging that that agency doesn’t plan on finishing its investigation before awarding Malloy public funds.

The complaint Ancona filed on Oct. 28, 2013, alleged that Malloy was acting like a candidate before declaring his candidacy. The SEEC agreed to investigate the matter.

Ancona claimed Malloy solicited contributions and allowed others, mainly his former adviser, Roy Occhiogrosso, to make expenditures aimed at his re-election before he was officially a candidate. Such a misstep would preclude the governor from participating in the Citizens’ Election Program.
