Lawmaker Suing Opponent For Defamation
(Highwood, IL) -- One state representative says his GOP opponent is tainting his name. Representative Scott Drury filed suit against Mark Neerhof earlier this week. He claims Neerhof misrepresented him when he produced and distributed campaign materials saying Drury wanted to cut school funding. The ads also allegedly painted Drury as an unethical political sheep. Drury wants more than nine-million-dollars in damages.
