A self-proclaimed supporter of Democratic Madison Mayor Paul Soglin’s run for governor said he bought a couple of internet domain names with the intention of donating them.
Emails obtained by The Associated Press show Matt Dexter initially promised to donate the domain names to Soglin’s campaign.
Then Dexter asked for a job interview.
Soglin’s campaign manager, Melissa Mulliken, told Dexter in an email Monday that he was holding the website addresses “hostage” and she will not interview him as a “quid pro quo to get the domains.”
Dexter did not return a message seeking comment Tuesday.
Soglin also won’t have use of paulsoglin.com when he launches his campaign this week.
The Wisconsin Republican Party purchased that one.
