As was first pointed out by an astute reader, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dave Westlake is the subject of a recently filed lawsuit in Jefferson County Circuit Court. Westlake and his business, High IQ LLC, are being sued by Fawaad Kahn of Streamwood, Illinois. When reached for comment on the suit, Westlake indicated my email was the first he was hearing of the suit, but I’m sure more information will be forthcoming about the nature of the suit.
It will be interesting to see what – if any – impact this has on Westlake’s U.S. Senate campaign.
EDIT: Dave Umhoefer of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has more details about the lawsuit against Westlake.
