Cravaack campaign in legal dispute with law firm

A New Jersey law firm that served as counsel during U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack’s congressional campaign has filed a suit against the congressman, saying its bill hasn’t been paid.

The Duluth News Tribune reports that J. C. Neu & Associates of Red Bank, N.J., is seeking reimbursement of services provided for the Cravaack campaign.

The paper says the Cravaack campaign “reported a $32,250 claim from Neu to the Federal Election Commission but characterized the billings as ‘disputed.'” The law firm said that amount is incorrect, but wouldn’t say whether it was high or low, the paper said.

Ben Golnik, a campaign adviser to Cravaack, said in a statement: “This is an ongoing legal matter which we are working to resolve. We have no further comment at this time.”

    Uh oh! Does Cravaack have to raise his personal debt ceiling?

    HMMM. When it comes to Chip Cravaack, the hits just keep on coming. And why was it, again, that he got elected?

    Anybody from the 8th Congressional District want to give us an answer? Is this what you were hoping for, or were you just NOT PAYING ATTENTION?

    Surprise, another “personal responsibility” conservative welshing on a debt!

    And really, he couldn’t find adequate legal services here in Minnesota?

    This guy uses New Jersey lawyers and is moving to New Hampshire…and he’s obviously listened to Shelley who told him that all he had to do with any invoices is to just pay the interest…No problem!
