Re: A History of Sen. Frank Lasee's Residency Issues
 
For years, Republican Senator Frank Lasee has had trouble dispelling rumors that he no longer lives at the residence he claims when filing papers to run for public office. As Lasee faces an official challenge to his eligibility for 2014 ballot, an overview of available property, legal, and professional records going back to 2008 show Lasee has claimed many different addresses over the years, listing owners as Frank and Amy Lasee, with an address in Racine. 
 
The Racine address is the only consistent address that occurs after an examination of property records. Lasee's dishonesty undermines the Government Accountability Board's efforts to oversee and enforce ethical election standards.
A Timeline of Frank Lasee's Residency Problem:
 
9/7/2005 - The business JSGSOFT, Inc. registered with the Georgia Secretary of State. The last principal address is listed as 1645 Swan Road, APT 7, De Pere, WI, 54115.
There appears to be crossover between this business location and Lasee’s alleged address. This business was not listed as dissolved until 8/26/2011. Records will later show Lasee used this address to register to vote and contest a traffic violation. 
9/3/2009 – In his 2001 Brown County divorce case Frank Lasee’s address is changed from 2380 Bluestone Place in Green Bay to “1003 Orchard Street in Green Bay”
The right address but the wrong city was given in this case.  This address is actual that of Frank and Amy Lasee’s home in Racine.

1/14/2010 - In his 2005 Brown County support/maintenance case Lasee’s address is changed from 2380 Bluestone Place in Green Bay to “1003 Orchard Street in Green Bay”
The right address but the wrong city was given in this case.  This address is actual that of Frank and Amy Lasee’s home in Racine.
 
1/15/2010 – A Racine County traffic case is filed for Lasee using his Racine address at 1003 Orchard Street.
After 2010, there is no evidence of Lasee actually living in De Pere, WI. Documents point to a residence in 1003 Orchard Street in Racine where his current wife resides. Since this Racine residence was listed in the case it is likely that Frank Lasee’s driver’s license and/or his vehicle registration was linked to this address.
3/1/2010 – A Jefferson County traffic case is filed using Lasee’s address at 1645 Swan Road in De Pere.

4/20/2010 - In his 2005 Brown County support/maintenance case Lasee’s address is changed from 1003 Orchard Street in Racine to 830 Spring Hill Ct in De Pere.
4/21/2010 – Lasee registers to vote using the address 1645 Swan Road, De Pere.
Frank Lasee uses the same De Pere address listed as the principle address of Georgia company JSGSOFT, Inc which didn't dissolve administratively until 8/26/2011. The day before a different address was updated in a court record as compared to what he submitted for voter registration.
2/10/2011 – In his 2001 Brown County divorce case his address was changed from 1003 Orchard St in Racine to 830 Spring Hill Ct in De Pere. 
The address change in this case came much later than it did in the 2005 case.  Why was there a delay in reporting this change to the court in this case?
4/30/2012 – Filed his Statement of Economic Interests (for activity during 2011) and lists Racine address 1003 Orchard Street as non-commercial real estate.  This is the first time that he listed this property in his SEI.
This is the first time that he listed this property in his SEI filings. He lists no in-district address in this section.
8/28/2012 – A deed is signed for a Racine property.  It lists both Frank and Amy Lasee as the Grantees and it lists 1003 Orchard Street as their “return to” address.
Lasee signs a deed for a property in Racine with his wife - who lives in Racine. If his residence is actually in the district, why is he still using the Racine address in official documents?
12/3/2012 – Frank Lasee renewed Real Estate Broker’s license and listed De Pere as location.
12/3/2012 – Amy Joy Lasee renewed her Real Estate Salesperson license listing Racine as her location. 
Frank and Amy Lasee renew state licenses using different addresses. Frank uses a De Pere location for the first time since 2010. If Frank Lasee actually lives in the district, does this mean that Amy Lasee lives separately in Racine?

1/14/2013 – A deed is signed for a Racine property. It lists both Frank and Amy Lasee as the Grantees and it lists 1003 Orchard Street as their “return to” address. 
Lasee again signs a deed for a property in Racine with his wife - who lives in Racine. If his residence is actually in the district, why is he still using the Racine address in official documents?

1/16/2013 - Frank and Amy signed a “Stipulation Rental Unit Energy Efficiency Standards” document.  In it he lists his street address as 1003 Orchard Street in Racine.  It is also listed as the “return to” address on the document. 
After using De Pere as a location to renew state licenses, Frank Lasee lists a Racine address again. If his residence is actually in the district, why is he still using the Racine address in official documents at this point?  
3/22/2013 – Filed his Statement of Economic Interests (for activity during 2012) and lists Racine address 1003 Orchard Street as non-commercial real estate. 
Lasee lists Racine address as non-commercial real estate again. Again, Lasee doesn’t list an in-district property in this section.
7/10/2013 – A deed is signed for a Racine property and Frank and Amy Lasee are listed as “grantee”.  The “return to” address on the document is listed as “F. Lasee, 1003 Orchard Street” in Racine. 
Lasee signs another deed for a property in Racine with his wife - who lives in Racine. If his residence is actually in the district, why is he still using the Racine address in official documents?
 
7/12/2013 – Frank signed a “Stipulation Rental Unit Energy Efficiency Standards” document.  In it he lists his street address as 1003 Orchard Street in Racine.  It is also listed as the “return to” address on the document. 
Lasee's Racine address continues to be the most consistent location used after 2010. If his residence is actually in the district, why is he still using the Racine address in official documents?
3/20/2014 - In his 2001 Brown County divorce case, his address is changed from 830 Spring Hill Court in De Pere to “P.O. Box 5403 in De Pere”. 
Documents again show a change in Lasee's De Pere location, this time using just a P.O. Box in his 2011 divorce case. Is this yet another address that Lasee is using for official purposes?
4/14/2014 – Filed most recent Statement of Economic Interests (for activity during 2013)and listed non-commercial real-estate in Racine including; 3208 Kinzie, 4209 15th Street, 3452 Charles Street and 1003 Orchard Street.  
The most recent documents evidence Lasee owns multiple Racine properties. There are no in-district properties listed in this section. They are all in Racine.
5/20/2014 – In his 2001 Brown County support/maintenance case, his address is changed from 830 Spring Hill Court in De Pere to “645 Swan Road, P.O. Box 5403 in De Pere”. 
Lasee only uses a P.O. Box as his De Pere location. Is this yet another address that Lasee is using for official purposes?
