Would this really surprise anyone if it’s true? The Democrat’s designated “every man” has a lot of issues.
Cathy Myers has filed a complaint with the FEC against 1st CD Dem primary opponent Randy Bryce, alleging the ironworker used some $7,700 in campaign contributions to cover personal legal fees and satisfy a decade-old debt.
Bryce’s campaign didn’t comment on the issues outlined in the complaint, saying in a statement the focus is “on talking to voters about the issues in Southeast Wisconsin.”
The complaint comes after a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report this week shows Milwaukee-based law firm Halling & Cayo paid $4,246 to Bryce’s ex-girlfriend, Rhonda Slechta, after Bryce borrowed nearly $2,000 from her back in 2002 to buy a used car from a neighbor. Slechta later took the issue to small claims court, and when Bryce didn’t show up, was granted a default judgement in 2004.
Jeremy Levinson, an attorney with Halling & Cayo, delivered the check to Slechta in November, according to the report. Bryce’s campaign then paid the firm $7,704. on Jan. 30.
