From Ken Dixon, CT Post:
The State Elections Enforcement Commission will investigate Joe Ganim’s Bridgeport mayoral primary campaign, following a complaint from an East Side resident who claims he never signed a petition for the disgraced former mayor’s candidacy. In response, the Ganim campaign said the person who collected the signature has since left the campaign. R. Chris Meyer, a lawyer for Ganim’s campaign, said “a possible bad apple” may have signed the voter’s name.
“We collected about 4,000 signatures that was double the amount needed,” Meyer said. “If he didn’t sign a petition and someone signed his name, the paid worker cheated us and we’d want them prosecuted or held responsible. When you deal with both volunteers and paid workers, there’s a chance for possible, or probable, bad apple. Our campaign wants to do everything according to the rules.”
