FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - A former campaign manager is suing New Mexico state Rep. Doreen Wonda Johnson over allegations of missed pay.

The Farmington Daily Times reports (https://bit.ly/23uQhBw) that Keegan King is asking for unspecified damages for breach of contract, intentional infliction of emotional distress and other violations.

In the suit filed in January, King alleges that Johnson offered to pay more than $13,000 plus reimbursements in March 2014 and then an additional $13,000 a month later.

Johnson was campaigning for the District 5 seat, which includes portions of McKinley and San Juan counties.

According to King, Johnson only paid him $3,000 after she won the election.



House Democratic Campaign Committee spokesman Daniel Marzec says Johnson would not comment on the lawsuit because she has not seen it.

King also declined to comment.
