A hedge fund manager-turned-politician has suspended his campaign for Connecticut's general assembly because of resurfaced sexual harassment allegations.
Greenwich-area Democrat Marc Abrams was sued in 2010 by two women who worked for Titan Capital, the investment firm he founded with his brother Russell.
Abrams characterized the lawsuit—which alleged that the Abrams brothers used their power to "intimidate, degrade and discriminate against women"—as frivolous in an interview with Hearst's Connecticut Media Group. But under pressure from Gov. Dannel Malloy and others, Abrams paused the campaign citing ongoing state court claims.
