Sexual Assault Allegations at UConn, Corruption in Connecticut, and a New Cheshire Murder Film

Jul 17, 2013

Springfield voters have approved the MGM casino plan ...UConn is conducting an investigation into how the university handled allegations of sexual abuse by one of their professors...and last week, the Eastern League All-Star Game was held at New Britain Stadium and Governor Dannel Malloy received a less-than-warm welcome.

Turns out national political observers have their eyes on Malloy, too...he’s on a Washington Post list of “governors likely to lose their seats.”

That’s just one of the issues we tackle this week o  n our Wednesday news roundtable, “The Wheelhouse.” We’ll also talk with Matt DeRienzo, editor of Connecticut Magazine, about a big story in their magazine about corruption and the political system. And, we’ll preview a documentary premiering on HBO next week about The Cheshire Murders. It features interviews with the lawyers, neighbors and family members of the Petit family. GUESTS:

  • Matt DeRienzo - Editor at 21st Century Media, including Connecticut Magazine
