ATLANTA — A one-time candidate for Georgia governor is aiming a salacious accusation at the current lieutenant governor.
Ray Boyd, a businessman who dropped out of the governor’s race, laid out the complaint to the State Ethics Commission on Friday.
Boyd claims Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle had an affair with a female staffer, then paid her nearly $200,000 in campaign funds — claims Cagle adamantly denies.
