Perhaps it should be a jeopardy question: two politicians issued pissing contests in this Connecticut city.
We know City Councilman Ernie Newton came up negative for a variety of substances. Board of Education member Maria Pereira also had her urine processed at a North End lab. We’re awaiting the results.
Meanwhile CT Post scribe Ethan Fry shares this nugget:
“P.T. Barnum was once the mayor of this most populous Connecticut city.”
A little before halfway through the March 19 episode’s first round, three-day champion Lindsey Shultz selected the $1,000 clue in the “U.S. Cities” category. It didn’t end well.
Challenger Megan McAllen, a D.C. lawyer, quickly rang in.
“What is Hartford?”
Full story here.
Hmmm, ya think Mr. Barnum would have toured Ernie and Maria around the world?
“This way to the john.”
