Description

On July 26, 2001 Waterbury Mayor Philip Giordano was arrested on federal sex charges, people in the city and the municipal government where shocked and unaware of the reason. In a five-month investigation that began on the day after the mayor's arrest the Waterbury-American found that Giordano had associated with prostitutes and possibly used drugs while serving the city. Giordano also used his political influence to secure city contracts to campaign contributors and close friends.
