BATON ROUGE- A man caught in the middle of a political battle wants his day in court, and he's taking, the Louisiana ethics board with him.
Scott Wilfong's company printed fliers alleging in-fidelity on the part of mayor Kip Holden. The mayor has since denied the allegations, but Wilfongs and his attorney believe the board of ethics targeted Wilfong in flier fallout.
The board filed ethics violation charges, accusing Wilfong of not reporting the money he was paid in return for printing the fliers.
The charges were eventually dropped.
But Wilfong filed the suit Thursday alleging the board drug his reputation through the mud.
News 2 contacted the board of ethics for comment. Their spokes person told us they had not received the suit and declined to comment until they got a chance to go over it.
