A spokesman for Brian Fusco (pictured) said the allegations were the result of Lynch’s “frustation” in the leadup to the election.

With just days left before the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association election, the union’s president, Pat Lynch, accused one of his opponents on Wednesday of stealing thousands of names and addresses of rank-and-file cops.

Lynch said that the opponent, Brian Fusco, stole the union mailing list and then used the list to send out literature through a mailing company that wasn’t secure.

“Police officers’ personal information must be treated with the utmost privacy in order to keep them and their families safe,” Lynch said in a statement.

A Fusco spokesman said the allegations were the result of Lynch’s “frustation” in the leadup to the election, which begins Thursday, with results determined in early June.
