Lou DeLuca is back. He thinks that his former colleagues Sen. Tom Gaffey of Meriden and Sen. Joe Crisco of Woodbridge are crooks.
The State Elections Enforcement Commission hit Gaffey with a $6k fine for doublebilling the State and his Political Action Committee for travel expenses.

After nearly a year of investigation (the wheels of justice turn slowly), Crisco was fined $4k.
