Lorge: Accusations 'False, Vicious, Slanderous and Libelous'

GOP U.S. Senate candidate Robert Gerald Lorge is calling accusations from a female relative ``false, vicious, slanderous and libelous'' and calls the release of them ``irresponsible.''

News about a complaint filed in Dane County Court against U.S. Senate candidate Lorge by the female relative appeared at WisPolitics.com, JSOnline and at the online site of the Appleton Post Crescent.

Lorge's attorney told reporters that the alleged victim, when deposed, could not recall the accusations outlined in the lawsuit. But he was unable to produce the deposition over the weekend because he was out of town.

Other pro-Lorge affidavits have been filed, however.

Lorge and his attorney didn't return WisPolitics.com phone calls prior to the story, but Lorge in a weekend statement thanked "family, supporters and fellow Republicans for their show of support this weekend.''
