The news that Governor Malloy skirted TSA airport boarding protocols by carrying his son's backpack without going through security, is drawing reaction from Republican 5th District Congressional candidate Clay Cope.
The Sherman First Selectman says there is a double standard in Hartford and Washington. He says every day rules apply to everyday people, but politicians use their positions of power to evade them.
He compared it to Hillary Clinton setting up a personal email system at her home while serving as Secretary of State. Cope says Democratic incumbent Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty is part of the double standard. He cited the sit-in on the House floor which bypassed protocols about food and cameras in the chamber.
