Sheridan pays back mistake reimbursements

MADISON - A spokeswoman for Assembly Speaker Mike Sheridan (D-Janesville) calls inappropriate travel reimbursements from the state an honest mistake. Sheridan has paid back $631.

Records released yesterday showed the lawmaker was paid $320 by both his campaign and the state to attend a meeting in California last November.

Sheridan says he hadn't asked for reimbursement from the state, but the check was cut when his flight itinerary was mistakenly submitted to the chief clerk of the Assembly with other travel materials.
