MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A complaint has been filed with the attorney general’s office claiming Sen. Randy Hopper has not been living in his district.
Dawn Meyer sent the complaint Monday, accusing Hopper, R-Fond du Lac, of living outside his district.
But Hopper’s campaign spokesman Jeff Harvey said Hopper is living in a Fond du Lac apartment. He filed for divorce in August.
Harvey said the allegations are part of a smear campaign to boost the recall effort against Hopper, who voted for a bill that ends most collective bargaining for the majority of state employees.
Democratic Party spokesman Graeme Zielinski said the signature collection has been going very well since so many public employees live in the district. Hopper only won by 163 votes in the 2008 election.
The “apartment” address that Hopper’s office gave one paper in confidence turned out to be the $600k home of one of Hopper’s employees.
Has Hopper been requiring an employee to let he reside in his spare bedroom for the last 10 months or has he just been shacked up in Madison with his 26-year-old mistress?
