(Watertown) State Representative John Jagler says he found it odd that a friend of his would sign the campaign nomination papers of a potential challenger. The Watertown Republican says he paid a visit to his buddy David Block and learned Block never signed paperwork for Charisse Daniels.
“Ive never seen anything like this,” Jagler, a former news reporter, says.
Assembly candidates are required to collect 200 signatures. The 29-year-old Watertown Democrat submitted 201 signatures for the District 37 seat.
Jagler says he investigated further and found more and more people who said they never signed Daniel’s papers. One address was reportedly an empty lot while three other signatures were apparently duplicates.
Jagler tells us that as of Tuesday night he has sworn affidavits from 22 people who deny ever signing her nomination papers. On Monday, Jagler filed a complaint with the Wisconsin Elections Commission. Daniels has not yet commented.
