FBI Investigating Connecticut Republican Caucus

The FBI is investigating the Connecticut House Republican caucus and its use of campaign vendor mailings. The probe has prompted the caucus’ chief of staff, George Gallo, to resign. Gallo revealed he is a person of interest in the FBI investigation. House Minority Leader Lawrence Cafero says the FBI came to the Legislative Office Building Wednesday to interview various Republican representatives.

“Our caucus is cooperating fully with the federal inquiry into House Republican activities,” says Cafero. “Federal officials have also asked that we refrain from divulging details of the investigation to the public and the press.”

Cafero says Gallo, who resigned, served the House caucus “honorably and with the highest level of professional standards.”
