State Senate Republican leader John McKinney is accusing Governor Malloy of being in violation of state ethics laws in connection with last weekend’s attendance at the White House Correspondents Dinner —  and McKinney says the  governor “needs to account for his actions and make amends.”

Malloy was a guest of People Magazine at the dinner.  Citing reports that the governor’s travel, accommodations and entertainment are estimated to have cost at least a thousand dollars, McKinney said public officials are not to accept gifts worth more than $100 a year from “a non-restricted donor.”  He said he considers it irrelevant that People Magazine and its parent company, Time, Inc. are not lobbyists.
