That’s not funny!
Greenwich Democrat Lee Whitnum arrested for stalking, harassing judge.
A Greenwich woman accused of stalking a state judge who was presiding over her divorce case, denied the charge Tuesday she had done anything wrong.
“I never stalked the judge,” said Lisa “Lee” Whitnum-Baker as she left the courthouse. “I did make a call to the judge’s home but it was a seven-minute call and that’s not stalking,” she said. “I know the law.”
Whitnum-Baker, 53, also volunteered that she had never stalked the governor.
“That’s just not true and besides that was years ago,” she added. There is no record of an arrest for that.
Whitnum-Baker, formerly of Stamford, is charged with second-degree stalking, second-degree harassment and disorderly conduct. Her case was continued Tuesday to Sept. 26.
Greenwich Democrat Chairman Francis X. Fudrucker told FWIW that he was still considering whether to make the switch, now that Whitnum has resurfaced. “We do prefer that our candidate slate be comprised of people with the same moral and mental standards,” Fudrucker said, “so yes, there’s certainly that possibility. On the other hand, there’s some value in having a counterweight on the ticket, so that Independents won’t think we’re completely, over-the-moon nuts. So that’s the dilemma: stick with our base or reach out to other voters who aren’t in the party. My Vice Chairman – he’s in charge of prostitution, gambling, drugs, that sort of thing – Bill Gaston is all for dumping Beth and bringing Lee onboard and I understand that. But we’ll have to give this some real consideration.”
