STAMFORD — A Greenwich Democrat hoping to run for governor on a judicial reform plank was thrown into court lockup Thursday after allegedly creating a disturbance in the Superior Court’s library.
According to State Police, troopers were called to the court around 3:21 p.m. where they found Lisa Whitnum-Baker, 53 of Greenwich, being held in the court lockup. After speaking with all the parties involved, police say they arrested Whitnum and charged her with breach of peace.
Reached for comment, Greenwich Democrat Chairman Francis X. Fudrucker denied any knowledge of the incident. “Never heard of the lady in my life,” he insisted, while scraping a “Whitnum for Congress” sticker off the bumper of his Prius, “now excuse me, I have to go meet with a bail bondsman.”
