His fumbling attempts at sincerity and bloated sense of self-importance reminds me of another inept "cop":
CT Blogger over at My Left Nutmeg gets it totally right:
Jeff Wright, the Republican candidate for treasurer, has staked his campaign on being Connecticut's "Cash Cop." He has argued that the state bonds too much, and he will refuse to issue bonds if elected (regardless of the law, or the legislature, or the governor).
It turns out, to the surprise of absolutely no one who has been paying attention, that as the Mayor of Newington he asked for, and received, and congratulated himself for, receiving more than $1,300,000 in bonding for his pet parking lot project in downtown Newington (which apparently also abuts his business location).
In fact, according to Governor Rell, Wright and Newington, in addition to a Million dollar state bond, asked for another $500k in state bonding, and received $350k. At the end of the day, the parking lot will be 88% paid for by the state. In bonding. Which he hates. Except this time. For a parking lot.
So I guess Jeff Wright is really, really against bonding (he will POLICE IT LIKE A CASH COP), unless it benefits him, then it's okay. Or something.
