Malloy Will Back Primary Winner

Dan Malloy has posted a diary over at My Left Nutmeg. It's appropriate that his post is about Net Neutrality.

Firstly, if you're like me you've been following the net neutrality debate with concern. If you aren't familiar, net neutrality is in short the idea that the internet should be a level playing field, and that websites should be granted equal treatment by telecommunications companies. Many of those companies would like to create a tiered system, where websites must pay to allow users to access their content faster than others. Last week, the House rejected a Democrat sponsored amendment that attempted to preserve net neutrality.

Malloy hung around after the entry was posted to answer questions via the comments section. At present there are 56 comments in the thread, which I think is well worth the read. The first question asked was about the Senate race and would Malloy support whichever Democrat triumphed. Malloy responded with: Yes, I will support the winner of Senate primary, period.

It's wonderful to see more candidates venturing out onto other blogs, not run by their own staff. Destefano has posted two diaries now. The comments can be brutal but it's probably some of the most honest feedback candidates will receive. I expect we'll see even more candidates for various offices jumping on the blog bandwagon this summer.

Malloy, Dan. "Preserving the Open Internet." My Left Nutmeg. 6/15/06

Dan should not worry who is going to win the Senate primary. He should be concerned with who is going to be Governor. All indicators point to Jodi Rell winning big and carrying in some Republican and House & Senate Seats.

Why have Malloy and DeStefano failed to gain any ground on John Rowlands former 2nd in command? Democrats have been consumed with beating up on fellow Democrat Joe Lieberman that they have let Jodi off the hook on a number of important issues ie…Rowland…Moody…Rowland operatives still involved.

Thanks Ned! You have no chance of getting yourself elected but you have done a great job making sure no Democrat will beat Rell. Republican’s have got to be rolling around, holding their stomachs and laughing at us. State Democratic leaders have given up on their gubernatorial candidates and will pay more attention to who gets to be a district Rep or Senator than Governor. How pathetic!

The Connecticut Democrats for Governor are Dead, thanks to Ned.

It also seems to me that DM is pretty much mailing it in now. He wins the convention, then disappears for two weeks. JDS has a 10 point lead, with less than 8 weeks to go, and he's made no real attempt to differentiate himself from JDS. He hasn't given anyone a reason to vote for him over JDS, other than his own insistence that he's more 'electable.'

If he wakes up on August 9 with $500k in the bank and on the short end of the vote, will Roy O finally disappear?

Off topic, but since there’s no recent open forum…

From today’s CT Post: Fabrizi drug use claimed in FBI filing

Accused druglord Juan Marrero told the FBI that Shawn Fardy, a Democratic Town Committee member indicted last week on narcotics conspiracy charges, said he had a video of Mayor John M. Fabrizi using cocaine. The allegation against Fabrizi is contained in a FBI report of a July 7, 2005, interview with Marrero filed in federal court on Thursday.
Responding to the allegation, the Bridgeport mayor offered a confession to "poor choices," but stopped short of admitting drug use.
"It's real difficult for me because it's personal to me," Fabrizi said. "I've made some poor choices in my personal life. It's human. I've never claimed to be a choirboy. I take full responsibility for my prior actions.”
Pressed on what his "poor choices" were, Fabrizi said, "They were poor choices on a social level. I put those well behind me. They were random poor decisions that were of a personal nature to me."

Wow! If these allegations are true and Mayor Fabrizi was using cocaine while Mayor, or even while a member of the City Council, then he could really be in some hot water. However, if he was using back in the day and kicked the habit prior to getting involved with City Government, then I say forgive and forget. Any Park City residents that would like to comment?

Chris Powell at the JI had a fantabulous editorial yesterday imploring Lieberman to run as an Independent. To give the people of CT a real choice. Lamont is squarely in the "cut and run" camp of the Democrat party. Radical anti war activists from out of state have hijacked the nominating process and will deliver a candidate-Lamont-who is at odds with not only the vast majority of voters, but also those in his own party. And before BR can chime in--the Q poll has Lieberman beating both Lamont and Sclesinger handily in the general election.

We have postings about Rowland, Moody, Rell, etc. with all their shenanigans. But when the Mayor of Bridgeport (who wouldn't be Mayor but for his felonious predecessor) is caught on video putting his little white friend up his nose and Dan Malloy is the post of the day? Get on it, GC!

Ok, maybe I jumped the gun as the winningest loser in the history of CT politics, Kevin O'Connor, is now saying that the mentioning of Fabrizi was a mistake and hasn't been corroborated. Though Fabrizi certainly sounded like he was owning up to it (nice bluff, Kev).

Gio...the polls also had lieberman beating Ned 5 to 1 at one time..

" radical anti war activists" have captured the Democratic Party?
That is simply ridiculous given the latest national poll that 70% of all americans think the Iraq War was and is a mistake.I only wish such radicals had captured the party !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Furthermore the Q poll 3 way numbers will be significantly different if Joementum bolts...

Its clear to me you are some Joementum staffer...save your spin when your man losses.

Isnt Fabrizi supporting Malloy?

Maybe the distribution and sale of cocaine is on the table for raising money to meet future budgets in a Malloy administration.

I guess to guys like Bruce, anybody who supports Senator Lieberman has to be a "paid staffer".

I also support any Democrat over Jodi Rell. Does that mean I also work for the Destefano and Malloy campaigns too? Boy, I should be making a lot of money....lol

I would rather Have Malloy as Governor Then that Loser DeStefano who cut a deal with a Outgoing Lt Governor and The Town Chair of West Hartford to get their Ceremonial Mayor on The Ticket for LT Governor.

Dan is the best and ONLY Candidate who can beat Jodi Rell.DeStefano lost any chance of being the nominee when he lied to the delegates and picked Slifka Because West Hartford has the best voter turnout.Give me a break already.

Dan Malloy, Mary Glassman and Joe Lieberman are class acts and will win on August 8th While John"The Weasel"DeStefano, Scotty"too Hotty"Slifka and Ned"Im Not a Sanford"Lamont will all be sent packing and all will have a Big L on their political resume.

You apparently just dont get it.You must be a slow learner or something.

I am not a Staff Person for any Candidate I have 24.5 years experience as a DTC Member and I am Vice Chair in my hometown.

You can keep up your accusations all you want But you are just shooting blanks with your comments which a majority of the people here just dont listen to anyway.

Your credibility is sinking fast. If maybe you said something someone could believe and not continue playing the intimidation game Maybe more of us would take you more seriously.
