Bridgeport Mayor Fabrizi admits using cocaine while in office
Bridgeport Mayor John Fabrizi admitted publicly Tuesday that he abused cocaine while in office.
In a tearful speech to dozens of city employees in City Council chambers, the Democrat admitted he has used cocaine on occasion in the past but says he has been clean of drugs for 18 months.
Fabrizi became the subject of media scrutiny after an FBI report surfaced in which an alleged drug dealer claimed an associate had a videotape of the mayor using cocaine.
The mayor says he sought help for a drug addiction that he had hoped to handle privately. "I now recognize my actions affected many others, and I want to apologize to my family, my friends, and all of the people of the city of Bridgeport for my actions, my past actions," said Fabrizi.
