Some further details about the money race in the recall lost/replacement victory of Mayor Jasiel F. Correia II (D). Correia, who is under indictment for stealing from investors and tax fraud, lost the recall run overwhelmingly, 7829-4911. However, because Massachusetts allows a candidate facing a recall to run in the replacement race (not that uncommon a provision), he won the replacement race against five contenders with about 35% of the vote.
Correia outspent his top challenger by 57% -- spending $70,147 (though $17.500 was for legal work on the recall). The runner up, Paul Coogan, spent $40,343.
