An unusual series of disturbances surrounding a local state senate campaign continued Saturday, when both candidates appeared at Frederick's In The Street Celebration.
When Del. Sue Hecht - who is trying to unseat state Sen. Alex X. Mooney - returned to her car at the end of the day, the stem of her tire had been pulled out and the tire was flat, Hecht campaign manager Sue Tuckwell said.
Hecht, a Democrat, filed a report with Frederick Police, who dusted for fingerprints.
Tuckwell said a group of people wearing Mooney T-shirts followed Hecht's car during a parade Saturday and shouted derogatory comments at her through megaphones. She said Hecht supporters did not bother Mooney, a Republican, during the parade.
