A Republican seeking the gubernatorial nomination has gotten a donation from the ex-wife of Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton.  The New Haven Register reports that Phyllis Boughton gave $100 September 30th to his potential rival, Tim Herbst.  The Mayor said in the published report that Phyllis owns a kitchen and bath remodeling business and that Herbst and his parents had their kitchens remodeled by the business.  She filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences, last March.  The spilt was finalized last November.
