Legislators have a Capitol state for themselves, and long nights of laws have led to bad behavior. House Speaker Matt Ritter today warned both sides for improper drinking.
“Events are on both sides,” he said. I want to make it very clear that there have been events on both the Democratic and Republican sides, ”said House Speaker Matt Ritter.
Branford Democrat Robin Comey spoke in the House building on May 27 after admitting he drank too much wine for dinner. At one point he had to stop talking, and his doctor, William Petit, came to his aid.
Komi apologized in his statement.
“I suddenly and unexpectedly started to feel bad. This was caused by several factors, including anxiety, fatigue, and, unfortunately, the wine he drank during dinner. “Carefully, I didn’t drive home and stayed in Hartford until the next morning,” Komi said in a statement.
“It’s something in the ward that needs to be addressed,” Ritter said.
Jason Rojas, a majority leader in the House of Representatives, said Komi apologized to his colleagues and voters.
“I think we’re all ready to move forward and we’re doing the right thing that people expect us to do because we’re here,” Rojas said.
There has always been alcoholism in the Capitol State.
Even decades ago, there was a secret speech that lawmakers would loosen up during the session
“In those days, when it came to drinking and partying, things were very different,” said Peter Tersyak, a spokesman for New Britain.
Tercyak took us for a walk along the path of memory.
“There was a room somewhere called the Hawaiian Room. It was a holiday destination, ”Tercyak said.
This old sign, now displayed in the basement of the Capitol, remains.
“Recently someone called it a bar and I fixed them because the bar charges you a drink. Not in a Hawaiian room, ”Tercyak said.
