Did Key Air Give Gov. Freebies?
Did a Connecticut
charter service give Governor John Rowland and his friends a free
ride to Vegas in return for a sales tax exemption? That's the
question and the FBI is asking.
Sources tell the Hartford Courant that the FBI is taking a very
close look at the exemption, granted after the free ride in 2002.
This, as the Connecticut Legislature looked at impeaching Rowland
(right) for accepting gifts and favors while in office. Rowland
dodged that bullet, however, resigning July 1st.
Records dug up by the impeachment committee, however, point to a
trip Rowland and four friends made to Las Vegas in 2002 while
traveling from Hartford to a GOP convention in Florida (guess he's
not much of a navigator, either). Rowland and company stayed in
Vegas for 36 hours. Not long afterwards, the Rowland administration
won a tax exemption for Connecticut's air charter industry.
No one at Key Air is talking about the investigation. Neither is
Rowland nor his lawyer. The US Attorneys office is mum as well.
