Moore has accused Ganim of tampering with absentee ballots. She sent a response Tuesday saying:

“Joe Ganim continues to use Trumpian tactics to try to distract from his corrupt administration and campaign. This is a desperate tactic because he is beginning to understand that next Tuesday the voters of Bridgeport are going to reject his corrupt ways and write in Marilyn Moore for Mayor.”
