The Democratic Party is using federal campaign finance reforms co-sponsored by former U.S. Rep. Chris Shays, a Republican, to challenge a subpoena issued by state elections officials investigating a GOP complaint about the re-election of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
Shays said Democrats are exploiting what he says was an unintended consequence of his pushing the Federal Election Commission to be more aggressive: A claim by the FEC of broad jurisdiction over campaign finance that supersedes state law.
