Finegold, Adams display stark differences


During the primary, Vispoli accused Adams of attempting to mislead voters by denying he had been fined by the state for campaign finance violations earlier this year and for claiming he had U.S. Sen. Scott Brown’s endorsement.

Adams paid $1,000 earlier this year to settle a claim by the state Office of Campaign and Political Finance that he attempted to disguise the source of up to $39,000 in campaign contributions from his parents and brother. His parents were fined $1,000 and his brother was fined $2,000.

Finegold has been silent on Adams’ Campaign and Political Finance controversy at public forums.
