On Saturday, it was state Sen. Ernie Newton’s turn to get back in the public eye, posing for a Connecticut Postphotographer as he was sworn in as a registered voter after his release from prison.

Then Joe Ganim, the felon and former mayor, was featured Sunday on WFSB’s Face the State. Ganim shrugged off questions about whether he has a political future after doing time for taking kickbacks, saying he is too busy bonding with the family.
