Ex-FBI agents in a war of words over Ganim campaign

Two former FBI agents are feuding over Democrat Joe Ganim's campaign for Bridgeport mayor and the role one of them played in the corruption probe that sent Ganim to prison.

Michael Wolf was special agent in charge of Connecticut during the Ganim investigation more than a decade ago. He wrote a letter published Monday in the Connecticut Post that opposed Ganim's campaign.

Wolf also wrote that former FBI agent Edward Adams was not the lead investigator in the Ganim case as reported in news stories.

Adams supports Ganim's campaign, saying he deserves a second chance. He responded to Wolf's letter with a statement saying he did play a leading role in the probe that sent Ganim to prison for seven years for corruption during his previous stint as mayor.
