A federal grand jury today indicted John G. Rowland on seven counts, accusing the former Republican governor, congressman and conservative radio host of conspiring with a congressional candidate and her husband in 2012 to hide his role as a consultant to her campaign.
The indictment charges Rowland in connection with his efforts to establish sham consulting deals with two Republican congressional candidates seeking his old 5th District seat in 2010 and 2012. Mark Greenberg rebuffed him in 2010, but Lisa Wilson-Foley agreed to secretly pay for his help.
Rowland will be arraigned Friday at 2:30 p.m. in U.S. District Court in New Haven, where he pleaded guilty to a corruption charge in 2004 and was sentenced in 2005.
Wilson-Foley and her husband, Brian Foley, pleaded guilty March 31 to conspiracy and identified Rowland as their co-conspirator. By week’s end, Rowland had signed off as radio host to await indictment.
