On Wednesday, August 4, 2010, Martha Dean, a Republican challenger in the race for state attorney general, announced that she was threatening Garber with a defamation suit unless he retracted "statements made about her stance on decriminalizing drugs," specifically cocaine and heroin. Paul Pacelli, spokesman for the Dean campaign, has accused Garber of taking "her positions on some social issues and twist[ing] them every which way, trying to convince people that Martha is out of step with Connecticut voters. Furthermore, he contends that since the primary campaign started Garber's campaign has sought to shape the contest in terms of social issues when it should be about being the state's top law enforcement official.
