Negative reactions to Newton's resignation
From the New York Newsday
"I respect Senator Newton's decision but I am disappointed by the chain of events that led to today's announcement. I feel badly for his family, but I believe this action was in the best interest of all concerned, particularly the people of Bridgeport." _ Gov. M. Jodi Rell, a Republican.
"If there was nothing to the investigation or he had not already been shown something through his lawyers, in my opinion he wouldn't be resigning. Because I haven't heard the rush to request him to resign from the many people that thought that Gov. Rowland should have resigned. Those people have been strangely silent over this. They haven't forced him into this." _ Senate Minority Leader Louis DeLuca, R-Woodbury.
I skipped the positive quotes becasue it nothing more than politicains being nice to one of their own party members and I didn't like it when the Republicans did that with Rowland and this is no different. I would of had alot more respect if the Democrats would of criticized Newton instead of praising him.
He was a crook it that simple.
