Description

A six-month long investigation reveals that, despite campaigning on promises of cutting overtime costs for state employees, Governor Dannel Malloy own security team has racked up more than $1.1 million dollars in overtime in his first two years in office. That is more than the combined overtime costs for the security details of both the previous governor and lieutenant governor. Much of the overtime comes from Governor Malloy's extensive national and international travel, something critics deride as Malloy's bid for national exposure. A follow-up story found costs for the Governor's highly criticized trip to the White House Correspondents' Dinner cost $4800, despite the administration's previous claims that there was no taxpayer expense involved in the trip. Since the stories aired, the trip costs and overtime expenses for Malloy's security detail have become a campaign issue.
