An aide to Gov. Jodi Rell suggested sending “an obnoixous mascot named ‘car tax Charlie’” to hector and hound Democrats who oppose her plan to eliminate property taxes on cars. Another informal informant suggested that the governor “pull a Clinton” and “co-opt” gubernatorial challenger John DeStefano’s ideas for economic development. Those suggestions surface in a review by the Independent of the e-mail files of Lisa Moody (pictured), Rell’s chief of staff. How much of the advice did Rell follow up on?The “car tax Charlie” idea came from Philip Dukes, Rell’s counsel for policy. It was contained in a Feb. 10 e-mail to Moody titled “Ideas for the Car tax.” Moody’s e-mails were obtained under the state Freedom of Information Act.
