State Senator Joe Leibham to not seek recount for last week's election

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Joe Leibham will not seek a recount for last week's 6th House District Republican primary. The Sheboygan state senator lost the four man race to State Senator Glenn Grothman by 219 votes, which was close enough to ask for a recount that would have been paid for by local government units.

HAYWARD, WI (WTAQ) - It’s not a very good pickup line – but a Hayward man will go to prison unless he tells any woman he meets that he’s a convicted felon, and that he owes past due child support.

28-year-old John Butler was recently ordered to stop fathering children until he has caught up with his support payments for the kids he has.

Circuit Judge Eugene Harrington ordered Butler to tell women about his felony matter within three minutes after he meets them. He must also keep a job, get counseling, and stay sober.

Butler was put on two years’ probation for getting more than 4 months behind on his child support in 2011.

Other Wisconsin judges have ordered deadbeat dads to stop making babies – but the judge in the Sawyer County case is pushing the envelope into new areas. Harrington said he would not elaborate on his sentence.

In December, Corey Curtis of Racine was told to stop having kids until he pays $90,000 to support the nine children he’s had. Judge Tim Boyle said he wished he had the authority to sterilize Curtis.
