The Danbury Democratic Town Committee announced a fundraiser this week featuring State Senator Ted Kennedy Junior, but Republican Town Committee Chairman Jack Knapp called yesterday for Kennedy to cancel the July fundraiser while Democratic Party Chairman Gene Eriquez remains under investigation for domestic violence.
Kennedy responded that he will cancel his appearance, saying that there is no place for violence against women. Eriquez previously stepped aside from his role as chairman while nominations were being made for state legislative races.
Knapp said in an emailed statement that he finds it outlandish that Eriquez is still the chairman of the Democratic Party while he is under investigation.
Eriquez is due in court on Tuesday.
