Newcomer is being sued by the Government Accountability Board

Rep. Scott Newcomer (R-Hartland) of the 33rd district is being sued because his campaign finance reports were never filed according to the MJS. The reports (commonly labeled January filings) were due February 2.

Newcomer has made news in recent months as a house of his went into foreclosure in Elm Grove. Before that, he was elected into the district he now serves without actually living there. He moved into the district to run.

Today a case was filed naming him the defendant by American Express Bank, FSB.

Trouble in paradise?

Newcomer’s July 2008 balance was $13,633.16.
