Former Connecticut Governor John G. Rowland, who also formerly hosted afternoons on CBS Radio's WTIC-AM in Hartford, has been convicted of violating federal campaign laws by hiding consulting fees he received from an unsuccessful Republican candidate.
Rowland was convicted of conspiracy, falsifying records to obstruct an investigation, causing false reports to be filed with the Federal Election Commission, and exceeding campaign contribution limits. The scheme reportedly involved Rowland's being paid about $35,000 through a business run by Brian Foley, the husband of the candidate, Lisa Wilson-Foley, rather than through Wilson-Foley's campaign.
Rowland spent 10 months in prison after being convicted in 2004 of taking bribes from state contractors during his time as governor.
