NEW HAVEN, Conn. – A witness testified Tuesday that Lisa Wilson-Foley’s 2012 congressional campaign had an “incestuous” relationship with the nursing home company that federal authorities say was illegally paying former governor John G. Rowland for political work.

The former governor is on trial facing charges that he worked as a consultant for Wilson-Foley’s 2012 campaign, but arranged to keep his payment hidden from election regulators by entering a contract with Apple Rehab, a nursing home company owned by Wilson-Foley’s husband, Brian Foley.

The testimony came from Brian Bedard, an executive at Apple Rehab. Bedard was the first witness called by Rowland’s lawyers after prosecutors rested their case Monday.
