Ayala questioned over residency

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — The majority leader of the state House of Representatives has met with an incoming representative to discuss residency questions that arose following her arrest last week.

The Connecticut Post reports that Christina Ayala, who is set to take her seat in the House next month, met with Majority Leader Brendan Sharkey. A spokesman for Sharkey said the issue of residency is a concern to the House Democratic leader.

Ayala was arrested last week on breach of peace charges related to a domestic disturbance with her boyfriend at a residence she listed in court papers as hers. However, it's different from an apartment address on candidate forms.

The newspaper said Ayala and her lawyer did not return calls seeking comment.

Ayala faces separate charges related to an alleged hit-and-run accident in August. She pleaded not guilty.

Could someone explain to me what this has to do with Nancy Pelosi??? Is she an idiot, yes she is, but compared to Bonehead Boehner, she looks pretty good.
I guess they already removed the negative comments I read before signing in. I think maybe CT voters are beginning to realize politics here are just like DC - it stinks. We are being overrun by Democrat Dictators and I have given up entirely on caring what they do any more. But - I will still voice an opinion but just not vote. Too bad we didn't have more like Lieberman. That idiot Pelosi sounds like a crazy woman every time she opens her mouth - very typical of who is running the country now.
