CANTON, Connecticut: Just two days before the state primary election, Malcolm McGough, campaign manager and husband of Republican Attorney General candidate Martha Dean, was arrested and charged with breach of the peace following a tense altercation with Betty Fiora, a resident of Canton. Fiora called police contending that McGough "shoved her and took signs from her hands after an altercation about signs on her Albany Turnpike property."[1] She insists that she was removing the signs because they had been placed there without her permission. McGough, who was driving in the area, pulled over and confronted Fiora about she was doing. Another witness to the incident said that while there was no shoving, McGough did remove the signs from Fiora's hand with some force.[2]
