Try passing the cursor and not the connection -

 import MySQLdb

 import module_name

 connection = MySQLdb.connect(host='localhost', user='user',
 passwd='password', db='database')

cursor = connection.cursor()
 module = module_name.ClassName(cursor)

You'll probably have to modify the module's code a bit as well, but it
should work.
