Stamford (AP) — A perennial candidate for public office has been charged with stalking a state judge presiding over her divorce.

Lisa Whitnum-Baker of Greenwich is charged with second-degree stalking, second-degree harassment and disorderly conduct. Her case was continued on Tuesday to Sept. 26.

The Hearst Connecticut Media Group reports that she denied stalking Superior Court Judge Jane Emons. Whitnum-Baker said she called the judge's home but that it was not stalking.

Emons told police Whitnum-Baker woke her at 2:30 a.m., yelling at her. The judge hung up and according to an affidavit Whitnum-Baker called again and began to "rant" to the judge's husband.

Whitnum-Baker sought the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate last year.

She has clashed with Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who said her denunciations of Israel were anti-Semitic.
