Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore threatened yesterday to organize a boycott of Connecticut in response to Senator Joe Lieberman’s opposition to key parts of federal health care legislation. Moore said he will launch the boycott if Lieberman continues to block the bill. Moore urged Connecticut voters to hold rallies and flood Lieberman’s office with phone calls and e-mails. “I and millions of others across this country want to see Connecticut rise up against their representative who is not representing them,’’ Moore said. A Lieberman spokeswoman did not return a call from the media. (AP)
