Lyons, Lieberman and the Rep. George Wilber controversy


The Advocate ran an Associated Press story today about the scandal involving state Rep. George Wilber, D-Colebrook, who announced Tuesday he was resigning after it came to light he paid $100,000 to settle a claim of sexual abuse in 2005.

But the Hartford Courant has an interesting piece co-written by Christopher Keating, who worked for us several years ago. The story raises questions about whether various officials at the time, including House Speaker and Stamford resident Moira Lyons and Stamford native U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, acted to address complaints about Wilbur.  Check it out.
