Someone posing as a volunteer for Assembly hopeful Madison Nguyen was reportedly knocking on doors and verbally sparring with residents.
Nguyen—who’s running against Councilman Ash Kalra for the state’s 27th Assembly District—took to Facebook to warn people about the aggressive impostor.
“I want to be very clear that this person or persons is not with our campaign,” she wrote in a status update on Facebook.
Several people complained about the overzealous poseur, who apparently went on his door-knocking tirades without campaign material. Nguyen’s campaign called that a red flag, as verified volunteers always carry literature about the candidate to hand out.
Campaign manager Chris Ratana said the complaints stopped rolling in after the public notice was posted online. So presumably, the mystery impostor has taken the hint.
“It seems to be resolved,” Ratana told San Jose Inside Thursday. “We didn’t get much information beyond that. We were unclear what he as even arguing about.”
