Top Aide to CT House GOP Quits Amid FBI Probe

By Mark Pazniokas

www.ctmirror.org

George Gallo, the chief of staff to the House Republicans in the General Assembly, resigned today as FBI agents questioned legislators and reviewed records relating to campaign mailings he oversaw as the caucus’ political strategist.

House Minority Leader Lawrence F. Cafero Jr., R-Norwalk, confirmed the FBI investigation and announced the departure of Gallo, a prominent political operative who managed Gov. John G. Rowland’s campaign in 2002 and was state party chairman from 2005 to 2007.

Sources said the inquiry focuses on Gallo’s relationship with Direct Mail Systems of Clearwater, Fla., a provider of direct mail and fundraising services with a national base of commercial and political clients. Its clients include the Connecticut Republican Party and numerous legislative candidates.

Cafero said Gallo informed him he was a “person of interest” in the investigation and was resigning. Gallo could not be reached and his attorney, Hubert Santos, declined comment.
