he president of a Louisiana computer company has been charged with paying $3,000 to former state Sen. Ernest Newton for his promise to help her win lucrative contracts, federal officials said Wednesday.I don't know that there's anything left to say about Newton. There's a lot to say about corruption in Connecticut, which is far from rooted out.
The indictment alleges Foxworth, the wife of former New Orleans Saints football player and Newton friend Anthony Elliott, expected Newton to provide advance information about state and Bridgeport city contracts that would help her win them.
It also says she expected Newton to urge the winner of a contract to audit Bridgeport's school finances to hire her as a subcontractor. (AP)
