Paul Loscocco says he quit as Timothy Cahill's running mate after learning the independent gubernatorial candidate was coordinating with the campaign of Democratic incumbent Deval Patrick.
In a statement on Friday, Loscocco said Cahill political adviser Neil Morrison was coordinating with Patrick adviser Doug Rubin on a negative ad strategy against Republican Charles Baker.
Loscocco also said Cahill did not deny rumors he heard about jobs being arranged with Patrick for Cahill's staffers if he should lose.
Cahill is a former Democrat, while Losocco is a former Republican.
Cahill has sued four former aides, saying they conspired to engineer his running mate's defection and boost Baker.
Loscocco said he quit because he felt Cahill was no longer dedicated to beating Patrick.
