BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Bridgeport activist and former mayoral candidate Tony Barr denied on Tuesday that he threatened to shoot Mayor Joseph Ganim, according to ctpost.com.
As previously reported , Barr allegedly shouted that he intended to "blow the mayor's head off" after muscling his way into the government center on Thursday.
