Five Months Past Due: Get Sued

No, not your mortgage.

The campaign finance reports, silly.

A state Government Accountability Board attorney said Monday the agency would sue four legislators because they have not filed campaign-finance reports that were due nearly five months ago.

Michael Haas, an attorney with the state elections watchdog, said lawsuits would be filed within about two weeks against Rep. Tamara Grigsby (D-Milwaukee), Rep. Scott Newcomer (R-Hartland), Rep. Christine Sinicki (D-Milwaukee) and Rep. Annette "Polly" Williams (D-Milwaukee).

Reports from the four were due Feb. 2, but none has been filed, Haas said.

Only Newcomer is (cough) a relative newcomer to the scene--but that's not really a good excuse.
