The Rell Frog March: Blumenthal Has A Game Plan


John Lender of the Hartford Courant is reporting that Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, a partisan Democrat who was mentioned in a focus group discussion conducted by soon to be disgraced professor Ken Dautrich of UConn, is progressing quite nicely with his “investigation” of Republican governor Jodi Rell.

Apparently, Blumenthal possesses indeterminate powers that allows his office to to seize the assets and property of the victims he plunders through the misuse of fatally flawed affidavits. G-d only knows what other extraordinary powers this man commands.

Blumenthal told Lender, “"We do have a game plan.”

Blumenthal has not-exactly-subpoenaed “scores of documents in an investigation of whether a University of Connecticut professor's $223,000, taxpayer-funded study on government efficiency was misused to provide political advice to Gov. M. Jodi Rell.”

Instead, the intensely partisan attorney general has sent out what is called “a demand letter” to Rell. It is supposed she will comply with the demand letter.

When Blumenthal has finished assembling a huge cache of information from Rell and UConn, he will plop the load on a conference table, and his associates will comb through the mountain of raw data looking for any piece of political dirt that may be cherished and saved up for future political combat.

Blumenthal has often been mentioned by his party as a possible candidate for governor.

Is it not incredible that Blumenthal – who has his fingers in so many partisan political pies, and who could be called as a material witness in any real non-partisan investigation of Rell, since he was mentioned in the focus group discussion that spurred the investigation – should have been permitted to stick his nose so far into this particular political tent?

And is it not equally incredible that Jon Lender, a superb reporter, has not caught Blumenthal up on the point?

The Blumenthal Burisma Connection

Steve Hilton, a Fox News commentator who over the weekend had connected some Burisma corruption dots, had this to say about Connecticut U.S. Senator Dick Blumenthal’s association with the tangled knot of corruption in Ukraine: “We cross-referenced the Senate co-sponsors of Ed Markey's Ukraine gas bill with the list of Democrats whom Burisma lobbyist, David Leiter, routinely gave money to and found another one -- one of the most sanctimonious of them all, actually -- Sen. Richard Blumenthal."

Dave Walker, Turning Around The Misery Index

Dave Walker, who is running for Lieutenant Governor on the Republican Party ticket, is recognized by most credible political observers as perhaps the most over qualified candidate for Lieutenant Governor in state history.
He is a member of the Accounting Hall of Fame and for ten years was the Comptroller General of the United States. When Mr. Walker talks about budgets, financing and pension viability, people listen.
Mr. Walker is also attuned to fine nuances in political campaigning. He is not running for governor, he says, because he had moved to Connecticut only four years ago and wishes to respect the political pecking order. Very few people in the state think that, were he governor, Mr. Walker would know less about the finance side of government than his budget chief.

Murphy Stumbles

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy has been roughly cuffed by some news outlets, but not by Vox, which published on April 16 a worshipful article on Connecticut’s Junior Senator, “The Senator of State: How Connecticut’s Chris Murphy, a rising Democratic star, would run the world.”
On April 15, The Federalist mentioned Murphy in an article entitled “Sen. Chris Murphy: China And The World Health Organization Did Nothing Wrong. The lede was a blow to Murphy’s solar plexus: “Democratic Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy exonerated China of any wrongdoing over the global pandemic stemming from the novel Wuhan coronavirus on Tuesday.
“’The reason that we’re in the crisis that we are today is not because of anything that China did, is not because of anything the WHO [World Health Organization] did,’ said Murphy during a prime-time interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.”
