Grand Old Police Blotter: Rowland Down The River Edition

From the State House to the Federal Pen in 60 days. Connecticut's corrupt former Republican Governor, John Rowland is reportedly considering federal housing:

The Manchester Journal Inquirer reports the deal would require Governor Rowland to plead guilty to an unspecified criminal charge and spend several months in a federal prison.

One lawmaker on the select committee investigating the governor commented on the story, but does not want to be named.

They told Eyewitness News that sources close to the investigation say this is a "take it or leave it deal."

The sticking point in plea negotiations: Rowland is insisting he not share a cell with fellow Connecticut Philip Giordano.
