Rowland To Resign? About Time.

Since I've been spending a lot of my time down in CT these days I've been watching the news here a lot more. The big story for a while has been the investigation of Gov. John Rowland. Lately it has seemed like there's been almost a little bit more every day about his dealings.

HARTFORD, Connecticut (AP) -- Connecticut Gov. John G. Rowland will announce his resignation Monday night, amid a federal corruption investigation and a growing move to impeach him, an administration source told The Associated Press.

The governor was planning to announce his resignation on a live television address to the state at 6 p.m., the source said Monday, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Rowland's resignation would elevate Lt. Gov. M. Jodi Rell to governor.

Rowland, 47, a Republican easily re-elected to a third term in 2002, admitted late last year that he lied about accepting gifts and favors from friends, state contractors and state employees. [CNN.com]
