After forming a committee to run Senator Lou DeLuca out of town on a rail for conduct that brought disdain on the State Senate, the chamber's Democratic leader Don Williams has brought disdain upon himself in setting an ugly double standard by refusing to examine the activities of Senator Tom Gaffey and a CSUS liaison in regards to the $1 billion in bonding he helped shepherd through to benefit the CSUS, and his lover.
While the circumstances between the DeLuca issue and the Gaffey issue are very different, they are similar in one important respect; they call into question the integrity of the Senate. Now we know that to Don Williams "ethics" are just another phrase they throw around when trying to ensnare a Republican guilty of wrongdoing, but something they refuse to apply to themselves.
This is what you get with a supermajority. They may not be effective with their massive numbers in the legislature in getting any policies implemented or addressing the concerns of Connecticut residents, but they are damned good at insulating their own from the consequences of their actions.
It may be that Gaffey did nothing literally wrong. But thanks to Don Williams and Senate Democrats, we'll never get the opportunity to make that judgment.
