MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - The Republican candidate for Wisconsin Secretary of State has been sued for allegedly getting a drunk woman pregnant.
David King of Milwaukee is running against long-time Secretary of State Doug La Follette next Tuesday. The lawsuit was filed in Milwaukee County Circuit Court by Charlette Harris.
The suit said King hired her to work at the Buy-Seasons costume company in New Berlin. They reportedly had lunch in August – and she said King bought her several drinks and took her to his apartment where she passed out.
In September, she learned she was pregnant. And her lawsuit said the 31-year-old Harris was a lesbian, and had not been with any other men around that time. She also claimed that King told her to get an abortion.
King called the lawsuit stupid, ridiculous, and a plot against his campaign – and he had no other comment. It accuses him of battery, violating privacy, and emotional distress. And it accuses Buy-Seasons of negligent supervision.
The firm has not commented. King operates a street ministry, and the lawsuit said he’s also an agent for Buy-Seasons.
