Caruso is campaigning to bring election reform to Bridgeport
After his failed run in the Bridgeport Democratic mayoral primary, State Representative Chris Caruso (D-Bridgeport) has decided not to challenge the results in court. Instead, he plans to file fraud complaints with the state Elections Commission.Caruso says he discovered that 144 people went into the poling places, but their names were not check off on a voting list. He also alleges some voters were able to vote twice while other were denied voting privileges. By not going to court, Caruso has given up the possibility of a judge overturning the election, which means he won't have a chance to run for mayor in November. As for any fraud in the Primary election, it will be up to the state Elections Commission to investigate.
