Deluca criticizes legislature

From the Courant's Christopher Keating:

Former Senate Republican leader Louis DeLuca lashed out Wednesday, saying that legislators were hypocrites for investigating his misdemeanor conviction last year and refusing to investigate numerous Democratic lawmakers regarding drunken driving, sexual abuse, engaging in a bar fight, witnessing a bribe, forging an application for public campaign funds, and having an affair with a legislative liaison.

Lou DeLuca needed to resign or get booted from office. But he's also 100% correct to point out the hypocrisy of the legislature.

Of course, the problem wasn't so much that the legislature wanted to boot him.


The legislature was comfortable ignoring his problems. They (both R & D) only pressured him because of the immense public pressure coming to bear on the hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil Gang of 187.

I'm glad DeLuca blasted 'em though. They absolutely deserve it.
