(Providence, RI) -- Governor Gina Raimondo and Republican candidate for governor Patricia Morgan are filing complaints with the Rhode Island Board of Elections against candidate Allan Fung. The complaints cite a report from WPRI-TV that indicated Fung was allowed either free use of an office space for his 2016 campaign for mayor of Cranston, or was allowed to rent it at a below-market rate. While Raimondo and Morgan call that an illegal campaign contribution, a spokesperson for Fung characterized the complaints as a desperate attempt to grab headlines by candidates who feel threatened by poll numbers. The watchdog group Common Cause also filed a complaint with the elections board over the matter on Monday.
