Photojournalist Arrested by Connecticut Governor’s “Goons”

Ken Krayeske , a freelance photojournalist, was arrested by Hartford, Conn., police this week as he snapped photos of Gov. Jodi Rell’s inaugural parade. Police said Krayeske, who had supported the campaign of a Rell opponent, was arrested for being a “political activist” and potential threat to Rell.
Norman Pattis, Krayeske’s attorney, called the charges ridiculous, blaming the “governor’s goons” for needlessly harrassing a political opponent who happened to also be a photojournalist.
