The complaint against Gov. Dannel P. Malloy was filed Wednesday with the State Elections Enforcement Commission. It alleges that Malloy met with a state contractor on his fundraising trip to California on behalf of the Democratic Party.

“This is a baseless complaint and an empty stunt for a press release,” James Hallinan, a spokesman for the Connecticut Democratic Party, said. “What they allege happened, didn’t happen.”
