Boughton gubernatorial ad features officers named in civil lawsuit

Republican gubernatorial candidate Mayor Mark Boughton has released a new campaign ad, as he faces a primary challenge from four other GOP hopefuls.  The ad is being questioned for featuring two City Police Department members, who were named last week in a federal civil rights lawsuit.  Moore Bail Bonds owner Yvonne Perkins claims five department members conspired to put the company out of business and steer clients to the company’s competitors.  The city intends to ask that the case be dismissed.  Perkins told The Newstimes that when she brought up the alleged harassment, she was told by the Mayor and Chief to sue.  Boughton denied that.  The paper asked Boughton about the ad, and he said it was a complete coincidence that it was those officers who were featured.
