Connecticut, The State that Rips You Off

I’m singing the ‘Taxman’ by the Beatles to myself.

I was sent a bill by Connecticut authorities for $140,000 from the Connecticut State’s revenue collection arm for having been a painter, having had to collect 6% tax from customers in a 3 month period. It was stated if I did not contest the amount my property was in jeopardy. I owed nothing, just another example of Connecticut thievery.

I had multiple towns sending me bills of Connecticut State vehicle taxes. The registry was aware of this, the town officials were aware of this, yet they continue to double dip and rip citizens off.

If you own a business or rental property and you aren’t connected to a Connecticut corrupt official expect to be harassed, nickel and dimed, and face losing all that you have even worked for, being arrested, and possibly spending the rest of your life in prison if you dare complain about or expose the lying scumbags that are in too high a percentage in the judiciary, law enforcement, and other positions that allow lazy criminals to suck up tax dollars.

I found this on a site about outsourcing to India:

DOT employees arraigned in bid-rigging scheme

Conn. –Five state Department of Transportation employees and a contractor pleaded not guilty in New Britain Superior Court on Wednesday to charges connected with a bid-rigging scheme.

Prosecutors said the investigation represented the latest efforts to root out corruption from former Gov. John G. Rowland’s administration.

A hearing on whether to unseal the arrest warrants is set for Jan. 25. All six are due back in court Feb. 8.

Robert Marino, 60, of Peabody, Mass. and his company, Marino Brothers of New England, Inc., are accused of bribing state employees and colluding with DOT Maintenance Manager Joseph A. Misbach to make Marino the sole contractor for the cold sealing of cracks on Connecticut highways between 1997 and 2004.

Dummies´ Guide to Corruption
Guide to Corruption
by Carole Bass - November 13, 2003

Before the phrase "Waterbury mayor" became a synonym for pedophilia, it was a synonym for corruption. One mayor went to prison. Another was indicted. The FBI stumbled onto then-Mayor Phil Giordano's sordid relationship with a prostitute and two young girls while it was investigating alleged payoffs. One target of the investigation, which still continues, is a Mafia-connected construction company.

Giordano admitted at his sex-abuse trial that he took cash from contractors who were doing or seeking business with the city. The feds have been investigating an environmental cleanup of what became the Brass Mill Center Mall since 1998. They have yet to indict anyone.

Intersecting orbits: Giordano also took campaign contributions from at least two of the major bribe-givers in Bridgeport scandal.

Ethics laws are written by the very politicians who are supposed to follow them. How tough do you think these laws are?

Is there going to be a Corporate exodus out of Corrupt Connecticut?
