On separate votes today, the State Elections Enforcement Commission dismissed allegations of illegal fundraising and campaigning by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and approved a $6.5 million public financing grant for the re-election campaign of Malloy and his running mate, Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman.
The commission postponed a vote on the public financing application by Tom Foley, one of three Republicans running for governor. Its examination found that Foley had not yet met the qualifying threshold of raising $250,000 in contributions of no more than $100 each.
“This committee has raised $264,148 in contributions. To date they have qualified $220,977. To date they have not met threshold,” said Linda Waterman, director of campaign disclosure and audit for the commission.
Chris Cooper, a spokesman for Foley, said the campaign believes that further documentation will allow sufficient contributions to be qualified. It hopes to win approval of its application next week, he said.
