Federal authorities looking into Rowland contract
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- The husband of 5th Congressional District candidate Lisa Wilson-Foley says a federal grand jury contacted his nursing home company seeking documents relating to consulting work performed by former Gov. John G. Rowland.
Brian Foley told The Associated Press on Monday that his firm, Apple Rehab, was asked two months ago to provide documents about the six-month contract Rowland had with the company. Rowland told AP he's not been contacted by federal authorities.
The campaign of Mark Greenberg, another 5th District candidate, also confirmed Greenberg was contacted as a "factual witness" and has provided the requested information.
One of Wilson-Foley's fellow candidates recently filed a federal election complaint over Rowland's payments. Wilson-Foley maintains that Rowland's consulting work for Apple Rehab had nothing to do with his volunteer work on her campaign.
