The FBI arrested Bridgeport’s chief of police and the acting personnel director for the City. Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim claims he knew nothing about this. Corrupt public officials annoy me greatly. What makes irritates me most about public corruption is the abuse of power by elected officials. These public servants ought to know better, but all too often they use the authority granted to them to enrich themselves. It’s not that I expect better from them. They are flawed humans like the rest of us. But in instances like the one I am about to detail, it’s a preventable pattern of behavior. And this isn’t a victimless crime. It’s impacts are felt throughout the community, and neighboring ones as well.
