Randy Hopper’s Fond Du Lac ‘Apartment’ = Hopper Employee’s $600,000 Home

Posted by Phoenix Woman on March 15, 2011

By now I’m sure you’ve heard that when the folks looking for signatures for the Randy Hopper recall petition came to Hopper’s house of record in his Senate district, Hopper’s wife told them that Hopper, a key ally of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, no longer lived with her in Fond du Lac, but in Madison with his 25-year-old lobbyist mistress.

Hopper, in trying to avoid being booted from his Senate seat, says that he really does too live in his district, in a Fond du Lac apartment. Um, except there’s one small problem with that statement:

[Hopper policy advisor Matt] Phillips provided The Capital Times with the address where Hopper is living in Fond du Lac on the condition the address would not be made public. He and Rebecca Hogan, Hopper’s chief of staff, cited ongoing threats against Hopper and his family as the reason.

According to the online Fond du Lac County property tax map, the address is not an apartment, as Phillips said, but a roughly $600,000 home owned by a high-ranking employee of Hopper’s media company, Mountain Dog Media.

Oooops.
