THE SIDESHOW HAS BEEN CANCELLED
For those hoping to be able to see democracy in action (and I'm being sarcastic) the City hall steps sideshow scheduled for 5:30PM today by Hartford's Republican Registrar Sal bramante has been cancelled.
According to a quote by Republican Michael Fryar from ctnewsjunkie.com that the registrar and the City Council had resolved the issue. Apparently though that is also not correct. There have apparently been no meetings between Bramante and the City Council. One source familiar with the situation told me "there have been nodeals reached. The only thing is that Sal has been told to deal with the finances" and the funding already approved by the Council.
The other part of the story is that apparently many other Registrars of Voters from throughout Connecticut had bought into Bramante's story and had agreed to stand by Bramante at the press conference. Once I posted the documents and the facts yesterday, apparently members of "ROVAC" an association of Registrars of Voters in Connecticut, mailed the links to my story and the documents. That caused many of the Registrars to reconsider their support for Bramante's actions when they actually saw the factual documents.
Calls to ROVAC representatives for comment have not been returned at this time.
