This story keeps getting worse. Not only may have a longtime employee of Rep. Chris Shays stolen money from his boss, he may have used it to gamble, say several state Republicans. If that’s true, he must have been racking up some massive debts. He makes over $100,000/year.
A grand jury has been empaneled to investigate the matter, and has called on Michael Sohn to testify. Sohn is due back in the U.S. December 26th–he’s currently on his honeymoon in Bhutan. …I’m sure he’s coming back, too.
My heart goes out to Chris Shays. The poor guy lost a close election, and now finds out that money he could have used for his campaign was stolen by a man he apparently trusted a great deal.
We’ll see what the grand jury turns up–and what happens when and if Michael Sohn returns to the United States.
