Nappier Cleared Of Brochure Photo Complaint

The state Elections Enforcement Commission today cleared Connecticut Treasurer Denise Nappier of any wrongdoing, in the production of a flyer advertising a state college savings program.

Commission attorney William Smith says the pamphlet did NOT mention her candidacy or party affiliation.

“While we found public funds were used, as alleged by Mr. Healy, we did not find that they were used for promotional purposes by Denise Nappier seeking reelection,” Smith said.

Former Connecticut Republican Party Chairman Chris Healy filed a complaint against the Democratic official, which brought the issue before the commission.

Healy claimed the pamphlet was state-funded reelection material, because it included the treasurer’s photograph, and was distributed before the 2010 election.

The flyer dealt with the CHET college savings program, which is overseen by Nappier’s office.
