Malloy's attorney: Rowland knows fraud

Gov. Malloy's general counsel Andrew McDonald shot back at former Gov. John Rowland, saying if anyone knew about fraud, it was Rowland.
Yesterday, Rowland said on his WTIC radio show that DSS Commissioner Roderick Bremby should resign in the wake of the revelation that hundreds of state workers may have defrauded the state following tropical storm Irene, as Gov. Dannel Malloy announced on Sunday.
Speaking with John Dankosky Tuesday morning on NPR's Where We Live, McDonald tossed a spear back in Rowland's direction.
"He does seem to have significant expertise in defrauding the government," McDonald said.
Rowland served 10 months in prison and four months of house arrest after pleading guilty to to depriving the public of honest service. A federal investigation alleged that Rowland had work done at his home by state contractors, who he did not pay.

CORRECTION: This article originally said that Bremby appeared on Dankosky's show. It has been corrected to reflect McDonald's presence on Where We Live.
