On Friday, August 19th at 9:15 AM, Mike Meyer, husband of recent 20th District Assembly candidate Julie Meyer, is required to appear at the Milwaukee County Courthouse, Rm. 712, to defend himself against allegations made by Representative Christine Sinicki that led to a Temporary Restraining Order granted on Monday, August 8th, a day prior to the August 9th primary election.

Rep. Sinicki claimed that Mike Meyer was harassing her based on his presence at the Humboldt Park Beer Garden, where she was hosting a public fundraiser. Rep. Sinicki also claimed that Mike Meyer was contacting her friends and neighbors to accuse her of “peeking in his daughters (sic) windows.”  Mike Meyer will testify that he was knocking on doors and talking to voters in support of his wife’s campaign in Rep. Sinicki’s ward and that he never once made the accusation alleged.

Rep. Sinicki’s handwritten letter in support of her request for a restraining order is attached.  As has been reported, the State Representative’s letter misspelled Mike Meyer’s first and last name, includes “multipal (sic)” other misspellings and grammatical errors, and defames Mike Meyer with demonstrably false attacks under oath.

The video referenced in the legal document shows a confrontation between Mike Meyer and Rep. Sinicki’s son, who is shown to initiate the confrontation.  Rep. Sinicki claims that Meyer’s comment, “if you’re feeling froggy, sir, just jump,” was a threat of violence against her son.

Since her primary election victory, Rep. Sinicki has continued to punish her primary opponent’s family and supporters.  Beyond the restraining order, Rep. Sinicki has also attempted to use her political connections to have a supporter of her opponent’s campaign fired from their job.

Temporary Restraining Orders are easily obtainable because it is good public policy to believe victims that have the courage to step forward with allegations of harassment.  Rep. Christine Sinicki’s abuse of this process is an appalling political tactic that should never be repeated because it risks a change to a more restrictive law that could endanger victims of domestic abuse in the future.

    Please stop printing this stuff. Ms. Meyer and her husband need to let this go. The election is over and she lost. Continuing to make allegations without proof merely makes her look like a sore loser. Please do what is best and stop putting this out into the public domain.

  2. Jim M says:

    Not so fast Ms Ott, Sinicki is a public elected servant of the people. If there are serious allegations of any form of misconduct in office, those allegations should be seriously vetted. Yes sour grapes are sour grapes but harassment in any form is just plain wrong and should be dealt with appropriately..

  3. Zach W says:

    Let’s take this press release with a grain of salt, because Julie Meyer’s husband Michael has a history of engaging in harassing behavior. He’s the subject of an active harassment restraining order until September of this year.

    What this really is is an attempt to continue smear Rep. Sinicki because Julie Meyer was unsuccessful in her attempt to tear Rep. Sinicki down and win an election.
