Corruption, Concessions, and Campaign Contributions

Dec 11, 2013

A state court threw out the convictions on corruption charges that would have sent former Hartford Mayor Eddie Perez to prison; Connecticut withdrew its appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court in a case involving state unions and former Governor John Rowland; state Democrats are raking in campaign contributions from Northeast Utility executives; and former state officials reflect on meeting Nelson Mandela.

On the latest edition of our weekly news roundtable The Wheelhouse, we talk about all these things, plus WNPR business reporter Harriet Jones will walk us through the labor negotiations at Lawrence and Memorial Hospital.
