The State Senate Democratic Committee claims incumbent Republican First District Senator Frank Lasee does not live in De Pere as he declared on his nomination papers, but rather in Racine, and they are challenging his candidacy.
Democratic Senator Chris Larson says they have proof.
Lasee is expected to file an official response with the Government Accountability Board Monday. His initial response to some media outlets called the claim “frivolous.”
If the Government Accountability Board finds the complaint valid, Lasee could be removed from the ballot.
