Molly vs. Christine Sinicki
During a speech by Gov. Scott Walker, Christine Sinicki posted on Facebook: "OMG...this speech is so full of sh**. Wish I could get up and walk out." Later she posted, "I will not apologize for my remark, but I will apologize for swearing."*

Molly McGartland may recommend state funding to give Sinicki a free scholarship to Charm School.
CHRISTINE SINICKI WENT BANKRUPT WHILE SPENDING YOUR TAX DOLLARS
State Rep. Christine Sinicki went bankrupt last year. Court records show Sinicki and her husband filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. She reported family assets of $242,651 and liabilities of $179,457. The couple filed for bankruptcy several months after Landmark Credit Union* went to state court to try to foreclose on their south side home. This was the third time since 2002** a lender sued Sinicki for failing to make mortgage payments. Many creditors have taken Sinicki to court over the years. This despite her household income of over $100,000 a year – double the median household income in Wisconsin. ("I'm not a financial person," she says, even though she votes on the state's multi- billion dollar budget.)

20th District representative candidate Molly McGartland will vote for fiscally responsible legislation!
CHRISTINE SINICKI WAS SERVED WITH WARRANTS FOR NON-PAYMENT
Two warrants were ordered in 2012 against state Rep. Christine Sinicki by a Milwaukee judge.* The lawmaker failed to appear in court over an April traffic incident. She was driving on a suspended license. Her vehicle had a suspended registration. Sinicki could have avoided the warrants by simply paying the tickets or appearing in court. She did neither. She also thought it was all right to collect over $4,000 in mileage per diem payments in 2011 while breaking the law. Sinicki was driving on a suspended license when she collected these per diem payments.

Molly promises she will not take advantage of the mileage per diem program. After all, it's your money, isn't it?
CHRISTINE SINICKI ASSUMES LEGISLATORS ARE EXEMPT FROM THE LAW
Christine Sinicki got a traffic ticket in Fond du Lac County* for speeding (really speeding – 20 mph over the limit). She was fined $276 and threatened with a 2-year suspension of her driver's license. Of course, she didn't pay the fine or show up in court. For Sinicki, this was nothing unusual. But what is unusual is she mailed in a "not guilty" plea from her State Office using her official Legislature Letterhead. Luckily it didn't matter. To her surprise, the court decided legislators have to obey the law, too!
*Fond du Lac Circuit Court, Case #2011TR003529
Molly McGartland knows the difference between legislative business and personal business. She will not embarrass 20th District taxpayers, nor will she burden them with any of her personal expenses.
CHRISTINE SINICKI DIDN'T PAY HER PROPERTY TAXES
In 2012, Sinicki owed the City of Milwaukee $9,000 in unpaid property taxes. The City turned the matter over to a collection agency.* Sinicki is OK with your taxes being higher. What difference does it make? She doesn’t pay hers!
*Milwaukee County Court, Case #2012SC028434
As a former award-winning Realtor, Molly McGartland pays her taxes and will work in Madison to continue the trend to lower real estate taxes, something Christine Sinicki opposes.
CHRISTINE SINICKI DOESN’T THINK APPLETON IS IN WISCONSIN
In 2013, Sinicki disagreed with testimony about Common Core Standards, so she resigned from the Assembly’s special committee on the standards. She was outraged. “It has become painfully clear that this committee and its activities are occurring at the behest of interested parties outside of this Legislature, and even this state,” she said in her letter.* She needs a geography lesson. The group which testified is headquartered in Appleton.

Molly McGartland appreciates hearing opinions from everyone. You, too!
CHRISTINE SINICKI: YOU HAVE TO SUE HER TO GET PAID
Christine Sinicki and her husband have left a long trail of red ink behind them, and we’re not talking about state deficits (although she voted for plenty of those). She was served with foreclosure notices from Landmark Credit Union (2012), Bank of New York (2007) and Washington Mutual Bank (2003). Apparently, the only way to receive payment from Sinicki is to sue her. Claims against her included City of Milwaukee (2012), North Star Management (2008), Erin Capitol Management LLC (2007), Acuity (2005), Wells Fargo Financial (2002) and even Mega Marts Inc. (2002) – that’s Pick ‘n Save! Who gets sued by Pick ‘n Save?!?! All of these financial shenanigans occurred after she was elected as our representative. Is she representative of you?
20th District representative candidate Molly McGartland pays her bills and will work to cut taxes so you can have an easier time paying yours.
CHRISTINE SINICKI DIDN’T EVEN PAY HER DENTIST…THIS YEAR!
None of these lawsuits against Sinicki is especially old news. But one is especially recent and revealing. Sinicki was sued this year in Small Claims Court by her South Shore dentist!* She is still holding off people to whom she owes money! Is she now even more able to take a bite out of others? Her credit is awful. Is she a credit to the 20th District?
*Milwaukee County Court, Case #2014SC007607
Molly McGartland won’t embarrass the Wisconsin 20th State Assembly District by not paying her bills…and won’t embarrass us in any other way!
