Connecticut Governer John Rowland is going to Resign!


Recommended Posts

Connecticut Governer John Rowland is going to Resign. Governer Rowland admitted that he lied about getting gifts and favors from friends, state contractors and state employees. But, he said that he did nothing wrong.

Rowland came into a scandal in December when he admitted accepting renovations at his lakeside cottage, including a hot tub and new heating system, and lying about it. Rowland also received cigars, champagne, a vintage Ford Mustang convertible, a canoe and free or discounted vacations from employees and friends, including some with state contracts.

Federal and state authorities were investigating if the gifts were illegal. A special House commitiee was holding hearings to decide if Rowland should be impeached.

Well, now it seems that Rowland is going to resign.

What do you think about this? Do you think it is a growing trend in governers? Think about it. There have been two governers that have resigned, one in California and now one in Connecticut.
