Sen. Thomas Gaffey is under investigation by the SEEC for double billing. The Courant has the story. More later.
Update: The Courant story lists the transgression:
A veteran Democratic state senator double-billed the state and his own political action committee for thousands of dollars’ worth of expenses for travel and posh hotels over a four-year period, state records show.
“This was not intentional,” he said. “There were a number of trips that just got by me. … I feel very badly about it. It’s embarrassing.” (Lender)
This isn’t the first time Gaffey has found himself in questionable ethics territory, either.
