Procopis' Signatures Challenged

Three people filed as candidates for the 13th Assembly district, which covers parts of West Milwaukee, Milwaukee and Wauwatosa.

One of the three was the Democratic incumbent, David Cullen. Challenging him were Lisa Becker, running as an Independent and Paris Procopis, running as a Republican.

Cog Dis has learned that a complaint has been filed with the GAB against Procopis' signatures.

According to the complaint, problems include dates not being included on a couple of the signatures as well as people signing Cullen's petition before Procopis' petition (you're only allowed to sign one petition for any given district) and one person who did not live in the 13th District.

If the complaint is found to be valid, it would preclude Procopis from being on the ballot in November, although he could always run as a write-in candidate.

  1. This challenge was strictly the Cullen campaign and Democratic lawyers. Cullen is a coward, not willing to challenge a no name Republican candidate! Feels he is entitled to his cushy state job!
