Lieberman Campaign Petty Cash Skullduggery?
Nearly four hundred grand in cash can go pretty far, even in Connecticut.
Ned Lamont's campaign says Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (D-Conn.) has failed to account for $387,000 in petty cash his campaign spent days before the state's Democratic primary in August.
"Whenever this much cash is floating around, it certainly raises suspicions of possible vote-buying and other potentially illegal activities that the Lieberman campaign must answer," said Liz Dupont-Diehl, a Lamont spokeswoman.
The Lieberman camp denied any wrongdoing. Spokeswoman Tammy Sun said the cash was paid to field coordinators who then distributed money to canvassing workers.
