Peter Destefano, the 3rd District Congressional candidate and resident man of mystery is back on the campaign trail.
Destefano, whose name recognition in the district soared after a report questioned the authenticity of his “Tea Party-backed” claims, has been MIA during what is fast becoming a bitter 3rd District contest. Earlier in the summer accusations that he was a plant by incumbent Democrat Rep. John Adler circulated and even made it into a Politico story on shadow candidates. Dumped by the Tea Party, the man without a party seemed down and out of the race.
But the mystery man is reportedly holding a fundraiser on Oct. 8 at the Indian Chief Tavern in Medford.
