With BC-CT--Connecticut Corruption By The Associated Press
Here are the highlights of the evidence former Department of Children and
Families Commissioner Kristine Ragaglia gave federal authorities
investigating the Rowland administration. The information comes from grand
jury transcripts, FBI reports and personal diaries subpoenaed by prosecutors
and reviewed by The Associated Press:
- Ragaglia said she received limousine trips, expensive dinners and nights
at fine hotels, the same gifts federal prosecutors said contractor William
Tomasso used to bribe Rowland's office.
- Ragaglia said she had a yearlong affair with Rowland's deputy chief of
staff, Lawrence Alibozek, and assumed he was paying for the trips.
- Although she said she never drank on the job, Ragaglia told investigators
that while running her department she battled an alcohol problem so severe,
some memories are spotty.
- She told investigators that she suspected a $57 million reform school
contract was being steered. But when Tomasso secretly joined a state
delegation to Ohio to schools, Ragaglia said she didn't argue because it was
chance to spend time with Alibozek.
- Ragaglia expressed misgivings about the deal in her diary. She called
Tomasso's ties to the governor's office "disconcerting," worried she was
being used and predicted authorities would discover the scheme.
- Alibozek and co-chief of staff Peter Ellef kept Ragaglia on edge, she
wrote in her diaries. She said they suggested she might not be reappointed
and yelled at her when she questioned the process.
- While on a contractor-financed trip to Boston's Ritz-Carlton hotel, she
called a subordinate and pushed to get Tomasso on a list of approved
- When Tomasso won the contract, she wrote in her diary: "I met my
obligation. I'm done."

In late 2002 Kristine Ragaglia began a long, strange journey from high
government rank to low public reputation.
In November of that year she began telling federal agents of her experiences
as a supporting player in what later became the scandal that toppled
then-Gov. John G. Rowland. A month later she was told she would not be
reappointed as commissioner of the problem-plagued Department of Children
No one has publicly claimed that the second incident was the result of the
first. But the events sent her along two very different paths - one of
cooperation with investigators who later decided her role in the scandal did
not merit prosecution, and the other an insider's deft navigation of state
personnel rules to land a $105,000 year job as, of all things, head of a
state anti-fraud unit.
Those two separate paths collided explosively this week with the disclosure
of secret grand jury transcripts in which Ragaglia admitted helping to steer
a multimillion-dollar contract to Rowland's friend and benefactor
businessman William Tomasso.
That news - coming the week after a defense lawyer said during Tomasso's
prison sentencing that Ragaglia "should have been a co-defendant in this
case" - put a sharp focus on the incongruity of a scandal participant
running a state fraud unit.
Soon after news of the leaked grand jury documents hit the Associated Press
wire Monday, Gov. M. Jodi Rell ordered the Department of Social Services -
in which Ragaglia's "fraud and recoveries" unit is located - to conduct an
investigation that could ultimately bring about her firing.
"The department is intending to select an outside firm ... with expertise in
labor, personnel and ethics to investigate ... whether or not Ms. Ragaglia's
past activities should affect her ability to remain a state employee," said
DSS spokesman Matthew Barrett.
In the meantime, as the result of another Rell order, Ragaglia, a
44-year-old lawyer, has been stripped of all duties policing welfare fraud.
She will instead concentrate on her unit's other job of making
non-fraud-related recoveries of funds.
Ragaglia and her lawyer, Hope Seeley, declined to discuss the case.
The plunge into notoriety by the commissioner-turned-witness could not have
been foreseen in 1993, when she became an assistant attorney general in the
office of Attorney General Richard Blumenthal. In that $51,000-a-year job
Ragaglia focused on cases involving the protection of children and won
appointment as the state's child advocate in 1996.
Ragaglia was tapped by Rowland as the commissioner of DCF in 1997. However,
her luck as commissioner, a job paying more than $130,000, was no better
than her predecessors', and she endured heavy criticism during a 5�-year
That tenure ended in early 2003, months after the December 2002 announcement
by Ragaglia that "I have decided for personal and professional reasons to
remove myself from the Governor's consideration for reappointment as
That was not true, it now turns out; sources now say it was not her
decision. Those sources now say that, in the wake of Rowland's November 2002
re-election victory, Rowland's staff told Ragaglia she would not be
reappointed because of her department's endless problems and her dubious
prospects of legislative re-confirmation. But they let her put the best face
They also let her stay in a high-paying "transitional manager" job in DCF
for months in 2003 until she was finally laid off. But she still had civil
service status, under which she was entitled to be rehired if an appropriate
job opened up. So in May 2003, a month after her layoff, she was back at
Blumenthal's office as an assistant attorney general, paid about $100,000.
In December 2003 Ragaglia again exercised her rights under civil service
rules to claim her present job at DSS when someone left.
For all of the criticism absorbed by Ragaglia during her term as DCF
commissioner, nothing equaled the trouble now emerging over some of her
behind-the-scenes activities during that tenure - including her 1998
participation in improper machinations to steer a lucrative state contract
to Tomasso for construction of a new juvenile detention center in
Those improprieties played out in a soap opera setting as then-DCF
Commissioner Ragaglia traveled in sometimes-high style, on Tomasso's tab, in
the company of her boyfriend at that time, Lawrence E. Alibozek - who was
her boss and the deputy to Rowland's co-chief of staff, Peter N. Ellef.
Alibozek pleaded guilty in March 2003 to conspiring to receive corrupt
payments, and his cooperation along with that of Ragaglia helped federal
prosecutors win guilty pleas from Ellef and Tomasso, who were sentenced in
federal court last week in New Haven on bribery and conspiracy charges. Both
were sentenced to 21/2 years in prison.
But even though Ragaglia was not charged, she was obliged during her
discussions with federal investigators to make a number of embarrassing
On Oct. 16, 1998, as Ellef, Alibozek and Tomasso were scheming to give
Tomasso a contract to renovate a reform school under the jurisdiction of
Ragaglia's agency, she and Alibozek accompanied the two other men and their
girlfriends on a limousine trip to what prosecutors called the "elegant
Kittle House restaurant in New York."
On Dec. 30, 1998, six days before a state panel named a Tomasso company
among the finalists to build a $55 million juvenile jail for Ragaglia's
department, the same group traveled by limousine trip to the Ritz Carlton in
On May 11, 1999, the day after the state awarded Tomasso a contract to
oversee construction of the juvenile jail, Tomasso fell ill and backed out
of a jaunt to New York. Ragaglia - with Alibozek, Ellef and Ellef's "female
companion" - went on the trip to the Waldorf Astoria.
Ragaglia told federal investigators that she thought her share of the
dinners and travel was paid for by Alibozek, and that assertion contributed
to the decision not to prosecute.
But she admitted to acting improperly in the state process that awarded work
Between Nov. 22 and 24 in 1998, Ragaglia flew to Ohio with Alibozek, Ellef
and Tomasso to inspect an Ohio juvenile prison that Ellef used as a model
for what would become the Connecticut Juvenile Training School in
Middletown. The trip gave Tomasso an enormous leg up on potential
competitors for the Connecticut job.
When questioned about the propriety of the trip by The Courant for a 2003
story, Ragaglia said she complained to her superiors at the time that it was
wrong to invite Tomasso along.
However, she also told federal investigators that while she was at the Ritz
Carlton in Boston, Alibozek "directed" her to telephone a subordinate at
"Ragaglia also told the deputy that it was expected that Tomasso Brothers
Inc. would be on the short list" for the job, say documents filed in court
by the U.S. attorney's office. Federal prosecutors have said in their court
filings that the DCF subordinate "was not comfortable" with that and
"Ragaglia did not push her."
Nonetheless, Ragaglia did not complain publicly, or disclose her
participation in the Ohio trip, or withdraw herself from the process. In
fact, she agreed to sit on a state screening committee that ultimately voted
final approval of Tomasso Brothers to build the training school. The state
notified Tomasso that he had the job by letter dated May 10, 1999.
Federal authorities had substantial information suggesting a
bribes-for-contracts conspiracy involving Ellef, Alibozek and Tomasso - much
of it coming from Alibozek himself. Alibozek agreed to cooperate with
authorities at about the same time as Ragaglia. Unlike her, he was not
spared prosecution and still faces sentencing for conspiring to accept
corrupt payments and hiding them from the IRS.
In the scope of the bribery conspiracy laid out by federal prosecutors, the
hotel stays, dinners and limousine rides were of little consequence compared
to the gold coins, regular cash-filled envelopes and other favors accepted
by Alibozek and Peter N. Ellef. Alibozek got a new car and a yachting
vacation for his family. Tomasso companies set up and financed a landscaping
business for Ellef's son. Tomasso promised to build a retail garden center
to keep Ellef and Alibozek busy in retirement, but the plan ended when
Alibozek suffered pangs of guilt and dropped out. After he dropped out,
Alibozek said, Tomasso paid him $37,000 in "hush money."
According to a variety of prosecution documents filed in federal court in
recent months, Tomasso and his various business interests made a series of
payments to or on behalf of Ellef's son's landscaping firm - including rent,
consulting fees and lucrative landscaping contracts - that totaled close to
Much of Ragaglia's improper activity has been public knowledge since early
2003 newspaper disclosures of her participation in the improper 1998 trip to
Ohio with Tomasso and the others. Yet for years no one in authority voiced
public objections as Ragaglia quickly bounced back to the high-paying
anti-fraud job less than a year after being ousted as DCF commissioner.
Blumenthal said Tuesday that if Ragaglia had still been on his agency's
payroll in 2004 when he developed enough information to file a civil lawsuit
against her and others claiming corruption - a suit still pending now - "we
would have taken very vigorous and aggressive steps to remove her." He added
that "I have always been mystified and perplexed" by the sensitive and
important position she was named to at DSS, in which she remains today. He
said that "the officials who have now taken action" - including Rell -
"could have taken action earlier" based on the allegations contained in his
Monday's news disclosures added detail to the previous picture of Ragaglia's
improper activities - such as Ragaglia's admission in secret testimony that
she'd had conversations aimed specifically at giving Tomasso the contract
for the detention center.
Rell's press secretary, Judd Everhart, said the reason Rell reacted when she
did was that "Monday was the first time, to our knowledge, that there was a
disclosure that Ms. Ragaglia was involved in actually steering a state
contract. ... As soon as the governor learned about the scope of the
possible wrongdoing, through previously secret grand jury testimony, she
took prompt action."
