A political fundraiser claims Jason Plummer has allegedly failed to pay her more than $50,000 for her work on his campaign for U.S. Congress last year.
Franny Decker doing business as Decker Consulting Services in Washington. D.C., claims she began to manage fundraising activities for political action committees (PAC) for Plummer. In return, Plummer promised to pay her a monthly retainer, plus a commission on all PAC funds his campaign received, according to the complaint filed June 17 in Madison County Circuit Court.
“Plaintiff was an effective fundraiser for defendants and greatly exceeded the stated financial goal to be raised from PACs,” the suit states.
However, Plummer did not reimburse Decker as promised for her work, the complaint says.
“At the time of this complaint, the outstanding amount owed by defendants to plaintiff totals in excess of $50,000 but not in excess of $75,000,” the suit states.
Although Decker claims she has repeatedly asked to be compensated for her services, Plummer has failed to reimburse her.
In addition to the money she claims she is owed, Decker is seeking costs, post-judgment interest, attorney’s fees and other relief the court deems just.
Kent Gray of Springfield will be representing her.
William Enyart, a Democrat, defeated Plummer in the 12th Congressional race by a 9 point margin.
