Update: Malloy Will Continue to Shakedown Donors.
That did not take long. Governor Dannel P. Malloy had not begun his announcement that he will not seek a third term when his Boston fundraiser, Ben Josephson, sent an ominous email to donors–many with interests in state government. Malloy will continue to shakedown donors for political contributions. Josephson’s message also included a copy of the speech Malloy will deliver this afternoon.
Here’s the Josephson message:
At 2:00 today Dan Malloy will announce that he will not be running for a third term as Governor of Connecticut in 2018.
He is most appreciative for the great support you have provided and wanted to be sure you were among the first to hear this news.
Governor Malloy hopes to be in contact in the coming weeks about the work he still plans to accomplish in his remaining 20 months as Governor, including working tirelessly on elections in 2017 and 2018.
I will be back in touch shortly, including with the remarks he delivers at 2pm
Thank you for your friendship and support.
