Dairy magnate Scottie Mayfield told the TimesFreePress.com that two days before he endorsed Fleischmann, Wamp came to his home and secretly recorded a conversation they had about who Mayfield was going to support. Mayfield said Wamp sent him the following text message at 7:14 p.m. on March 15, 2014 after their meeting: "To protect myself, I have recorded my conversation with you and Lisa. I hope you will honor your commitment and not get involved in this race. Thank you sir."
Mayfield added, "I never dreamed somebody would walk into my house with a bug on. I don't want to say negative things about people. But I just don't think that's correct behavior."
