Rowland Attacks Federal Indictment, ‘Poisonous’ Publicity

By Mark Pazniokas

Attorneys for John G. Rowland filed a motion today that both broadly and narrowly attacks the criminal indictment that accuses the former Republican governor of conspiring to act as a secret paid consultant to the failed congressional campaign of Lisa Wilson-Foley in 2012.

Rowland’s legal team asks Senior U.S. District Judge Ellen Bree Burns to throw out the entire case and, if that fails, to narrow the government’s case in a way that could bar testimony from Mark Greenberg, a congressional candidate who says Rowland proposed a similar arrangement to him in 2010.

“The Government here is attempting to criminalize conduct that is simply not illegal. In doing so, the Government has stretched the bounds of the law well beyond what Congress had intended and well beyond what any court in this Circuit has found permissible,” the lawyers said.

The U.S. Attorney’s response is not due until June 16.
