Big Boy on the Hot Seat

State Sens. Bob Duff, D-Norwalk, and Andrew McDonald, D-Stamford have broken from their Democratic delegation, now calling for a review of Sen. Thomas Gaffey's action over a $1 billion bonding proposal.

In today's Stamford Adovcate, Duff said the following:

"If any of what has been published is true, then we do need to investigate. It just opens up a lot of questions."

And McDonald, who is fighting Gaffey for the a future shot at Majority Leader, also landed on the Gaff.

State Sen. Andrew McDonald, D-Stamford, said he wants to hear more of Gaffey's side of the story.

"I think there are legitimate questions," McDonald said. He added, although he might still have voted for the CSU plan knowing of Gaffey's relationship with Ferraiolo,"it would have heightened everybody's scrutiny of the project.
