Lisa Wilson-Foley and her husband, Brian Foley, pleaded guilty today to a federal conspiracy charge stemming from what they described as an effort to conceal $35,000 in payments to former Gov. John G. Rowland for help with Wilson-Foley’s unsuccessful congressional campaign in 2012.
Rowland, 56, who reinvented himself as a popular radio host on Hartford’s WTIC-AM after serving 10 months in prison on a federal corruption conviction, was identified in court as a co-conspirator of the couple, meaning he is the target of a federal corruption investigation for the second time in a decade.
The former governor was spared being on the air as the story broke: His afternoon drive-time program was preempted on WTIC AM by the season opener of the Boston Red Sox.
Rowland and his local lawyer, Bartley Halloran, did not respond to requests for comment.
