Jerry Springer takes the money and runs to . . . Connecticut?

Politics makes strange bedfellows, but tax breaks make even stranger ones. Pending final negotiations, TheJerry Springer Show, long a bastion of the most flamboyantly deviant behavior imaginable, will be moving to Connecticut's wealthy and socially conservative Gold Coast.

It's the kind of epically bizarre match that could only be the product of a lot of money. Stamford, whose Rich Forum Theater will be the show's new venue, sits about 30 miles outside of New York City, and is home to many of Wall Street's most famous (and infamous) money men.
