Re: Suzanne Bates’ op-ed, “Connecticut’s Publicly Funded Campaign Finance System is a Joke”
There is one thing we agree with Suzanne Bates from the Yankee Institute about, “money gets into politics — to influence.”

As soon as the Hartford Courant reported that a state grand jury had issued a subpoena for “all emails of Commissioner Stefan Pryor since January 2012,” it was obvious the controversial head of the state Department of Education was on borrowed time. Frankly, I’m surprised he survived this long.
From the start, Pryor presided over a culture of cronyism and opacity, rather than the transparency Gov. “Dannel” P. Malloy promised.
Take his funneling of $255,000 in no-bid contracts through the State Education Resource Center, for example.
