Massachusetts: Lawrence Mayor, focus of 4 recalls, now facing AG suit

Lawrence Mayor William Lantigua, who was the focus of four failed recall attempts, is now facing a suit for the state Attorney General for for allegedly accepting thousands of dollars in potentially illegal cash and corporate contributions.

The complaint alleges Lantigua accepted 16 cashier’s checks or money orders worth more than $50, a potential violation of state law, during his first run for mayor between 2008 and 2010.
Coakley’s office claims Lantigua or his committee accepted more than $14,000 in potentially illegal cash contributions in 2009, but “failed to keep accurate accounts of the 22 individual deposits.”
