Oh, those crazy interns (updated)

This is some of the oddest “testimony” before a legislative committee. From CT News Junkie:

“From liquor and smoking in a state facility, from sex in actual offices to kickbacks from lobbyists…” [Michael] Marsulo said.

More than one legislator joked that they would like to know where the sex is happening so they could get some and many were asking each other if they were part of the 80 percent or the 20 percent.

Former Lt. Gov. Kevin Sullivan of West Hartford told the intern Tuesday that in 1970 he started his internship at the Capitol and it lead him to want to run for public office. He said the bulk of the people here are good people. “There are some bums, but there aren’t very many,” Sullivan said.

“This is what you get from politicians,” Marsulo responded.

Earlier during the exchange Marsulo said, “I can’t reveal a lot of where my sources are right now. I will in the future.”

Heh. The video is here and fast-forward to 1:15 to see it.
