The Stamford Advocate has reported that Linda McMahon's nomination to the Connecticut Board Of Education, which was made by Governor M. Jodi Rell, was approved today by the General Assembly. The nomination will now go to the full House and Senate for approval, which is considered a formality.
The Republican American is covering Linda McMahon's appointment to the Connecticut Board Of Education.
Also, The Hartford Courant has an article up about Linda, noting that no one mentioned the congressional investigation into steroids in wrestling.
The Associated Press sent out the following article today: Wrestling Exec Faces Tough Questions Linda McMahon, chief executive of World Wrestling Entertainment Inc., has survived round one in her nomination to Connecticut's State Board of Education despite some tough questions by critics. A legislative committee has approved her appointment, 11-2. Her nomination now moves to the Senate. Some state lawmakers say her appointment sends the wrong message to impressionable students. Rep. Shawn Johnston, a Democrat from Thompson, says he brought his sons to a WWE event and was surprised by what he called an "incredible sexual overtone" at the performance. McMahon, who was appointed by Gov. M. Jodi Rell, says she doesn't believe the WWE product reflects on her ability to serve on the board.
