“Last December, the Mass. GOP came to me and offered me $1 million to drop out of the race for governor,” Fisher announced on Thursday during a press conference.
Fisher said two state party officials were involved in allegedly attempting to bribe him.
“My first reaction was ‘this is a bribe. This is illegal. This can’t be done.’ And my second reaction was ‘they have no clue why I’m running,’” he said. Fisher refused to name the people he is accusing, saying his attorney advised against doing so.
But he called on the state Attorney General’s office to investigate.
Republican Party chair Kirsten Hughes said it was Fisher who approached the party for $1 million dollars to abandon his lawsuit.
