Connecticut: Gov. Rell suspends chief of staff

The Hartford Courant reports: Gov. M. Jodi Rell suspended her chief of staff, M. Lisa Moody, for two weeks without pay today as punishment for asking state commissioners at the Capitol to round up donors for a Dec. 7 fundraiser for Rell's campaign for governor.

Moody, 46, who is Rell's closest aide, will lose nearly $5,000 in pay serving a suspension that begins Monday and will conclude Jan. 2. The Rell campaign will return all donations gathered at the Dec. 7 event. -- courant.com | Rell's Chief of Staff Suspended

Mr. President, you might take note of how a strong leader reacts to a charge of law-breaking by a close aide.
