AFL-CIO Endorses Candidate, Whose Campaign Is Under Federal Investigation

The Connecticut AFL-CIO has endorsed the candidacy of Christopher Donovan for Congress.  Donovan, Connecticut Speaker of the House, has won the Democratic Party convention endorsement for the 5th Congressional District race in Connecticut.  He is facing a three-way primary fight.  Donovan’s campaign is under investigation by the federal government.  An FBI sting operation alleges that Donovan’s campaign finance manager accepted donations in return for Donovan influencing Connecticut’s legislative agenda, regarding roll-you-own-tobacco shops.  Donovan claims he had no knowledge of what was happening.  His campaign finance manager has since resigned.
