Rowland Caught in Scandal Again

Former Connecticut Gov. John Rowland (R), "who served time in a federal prison for a corruption scandal but managed to piece together a new life as a radio talk show host, is finding himself again in the crosshairs of federal investigators," the AP reports.

"A former GOP congressional candidate and her husband pleaded guilty in federal court this week in an alleged scheme to set up a phony contract to hide the consulting role Rowland played in her campaign. The seriousness of Rowland's situation sunk in Thursday when he announced on air he was resigning from the radio station to 'take care of some personal issues.'"

The Hartford Courant suggests Rowland made the decision to quit after receiving an email while on air.
