Rowland Indicted in Campaign Finance Schemes

Former Connecticut Gov. John Rowland (R) was indicted for conspiracy and other crimes associated with two federal election campaigns, the Hartford Courant reports.

In both campaigns, Rowland "is accused of approaching the candidates and offering to act as a secret, paid political consultant. The seven-count indictment charges that Rowland proposed that the campaigns sign consulting contracts that would hide his role as political adviser. The indictment also accuses Rowland of seeking to channel his consulting fees through businesses or institutions not affiliated with the campaigns."
