Rumors have been swirling around town that Marzullo's party leaked the story of his arrest because they wanted to ensure that Sandy Litvack would gain a seat as a selectman, and if Drew garnered his usual overwhelming vote total he'd out-poll Livtack which, since there're only three selectman slots available, would result in their Democrat candidate being sent shuffling off back to the Nathaniel Witherell.
So I checked with a couple of local Democrats I know and, sadly, the story's not true. Sadly, because it would have been such a fun story. Here's the real one, however:
No, it seems he was uncovered by old fashioned reporting. A reporter scanned the Clinton arrest records and put together the Marzullo from Greenwich and the guy running for Liutenant Governor. If he never made that foolish run, this would never had happened. And furthermore, Litvack would rather drink poison than be Tesei's #3
