Mason uses donor to write legislation!?

The Racine County Republican Party would like to thank reporter Tony Galli of WKOW in Madison for breaking the news that State Representative Cory Mason allowed former legislator Jeff Neubauer, who currently owns a cleaning company, to not only direct legislation but to help write it.

The news report, which can be found online at www.wkowtv.com, shows that in an email from Neubauer to Mason, Neubauer states "Announce and release the bill in the form that is attached on Friday."

"This is simply unacceptable," stated Bill Folk, Racine County GOP Chairman, "The people of the 62nd Assembly District elected Cory Mason, not Jeff Neubauer to represent them.  Mr. Neubauer's interest in this legislation, as well as his contributions to Mason, clearly show that there was a conflict that should have been clearly outlined prior to the introduction of the legislation."

This Saturday Rep. Mason showed his hypocrisy when speaking with a reporter on WTMJ4 about the T.E.A. (Taxed Enough Already) Party Bon-Fire in Racine County.  Mason stated "Really we need to have constructive dialog where we pull everybody together."

"We'd like to know where was this dialog before he presented Neubauer's legislation as his own?" stated Chairman Folk
