Second chances are important in society, everyone makes mistakes. But 3rd, 4th , 5th and 6th chances. Where do we draw the line and realize that some people just don't want to change or are unwilling to change? Angel Morales might be just one of those people.
Morales, a convicted felon, has had more than his share of opportunities to get his life in order, apparently to no avail. He was even given an opportunity in the State Legislature as a clerk with a Senate Committee. That apparently came to an end after an investigation by the State Capitol Police..
Now Morales is apparently be under scrutiny by the Office of the Attorney General . The case involves a referral by the State Elections Enforcement Commission (SEEC) regarding Morales 's refusal to pay back civil penalties regarding missing funds from his unsuccessful run for the legislature and funds from the Citizen's Election fund that were unaccounted for by Morales and his campaign Treasurer. The amount in question was detailed in a complaint filed and heard by SEEC was $19, 381.85. As part of that decision Morales and his Treasurer Jason Lopez were ordered to pay fines totaling $10,000 and $5,000.00 respectively.
Apparently those fines have not been paid and SEEC now wants to refer the matter and collection and enforcement to the Attorney General.
Morales was recently paid at least $5,000.00 dollars by the Hartford Democratic Town Committee, according to paperwork filed, for election efforts.
