Gov. Malloy was guest of People magazine at dinner

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says he attended the White House Correspondents' Association dinner as a guest of People magazine.

The Democrat told reporters on Monday that he sat at the same table Saturday night with "Mad Men" actress Jessica Pare and "Parks and Recreation" star and comedian Amy Poehler, a fellow graduate of Boston College.

The annual gathering in Washington, D.C., brings together journalists, government officials, politicians, media personalities and celebrities for an evening of light-hearted banter.

Malloy said he attended an after-party hosted by MSNBC, where he's a frequent guest.

When asked why members of the Connecticut media were not notified of his out-of-state trip over the weekend, Malloy referred the question to his communications director. He added: "I can assure you the lieutenant governor knew."
