Newton’s Mayoral candidate, Ruthanne Fuller, has lodged a formal complaint with the Newton Election Commission and the State’s Attorney General, alleging that opponent, Scott Lennon has bugged her telephones. In a countersuit, Mayoral candidate Lennon has asserted that Fuller has been consorting with Russian operatives to hack into his Campaign Headquarters to reveal his campaign strategies.
The FBI has been contacted and purportedly fake news has been flying from one end of the basement of City Hall to the other, blaming a third party not yet entered into the fray.
There was no comment from the Election Department.
Turkeys were seen roosting in the trees outside City Hall.
