Secretary of State Alexi Giannoulias
Wallace “Gator” Bradley, a political consultant who last year sued newly elected Secretary of State Alexi Giannoulias for $20,000 in alleged unpaid wages, scored a recent victory in court when he was granted a change in the amount to $25,000.
Bradley worked as a political consultant during Giannoulias’ successful campaign for secretary of state. According to the contract, Bradley was supposed to have earned $20,000 that he should have received in monthly installments. But according to the contract, the fee was to increase by $5,000 and the contract extended to November 2022 should Giannoulias win the Democratic Primary on June 28, 2022. Giannoulias went on to win the General Election on November 8 and replaced veteran Secretary of State Jesse White.
In his lawsuit, Bradley alleged Giannoulias and his campaign manager, Hanah Jubeau violated his contract after they stopped making payments after Giannoulias won the Democratic Primary. So far, Bradley said Giannoulias has given him just $10,000 in three payments even though he continued giving services as a political consultant, according to the lawsuit. In his lawsuit, Bradley said he “diligently performed and continues to perform services pursuant to the contract.”
Giannoulias’ attorneys were given until February 26 to file a motion to dismiss the suit, but the next court date is February 23.
