2nd complaint filed against Moore campaign related to petition signatures

Posted: Updated:

A former city councilman is filing a second complaint with the State Elections Enforcement Commission.

It alleges state Sen. Marilyn Moore may have lied about who collected signatures in her failed effort to win a spot on the November ballot.

Joel Gonzalez showed News 12 copies of the signatures in question. He says Moore signed off on a petition page without personally getting some of the signatures on it, as required by law.

"Marilyn Moore is coming off as a hypocrite. On one hand she's blaming the Democratic party for committing irregularities and here the video and the documents show that she's the one that was obviously breaking the rules," said Gonzalez.

In a statement the Moore campaign said, "We are not aware of the complaint and are focused on the November election. However, clearly Joel is playing games at the behest of the Ganim campaign to distract from their systemic abuse of the absentee ballot system. I suspect Joel and the Ganim campaign will keep filing complaints to try and distract Bridgeport voters from their corrupt practices. It will not work."
