David D. King is a pastor in Wisconsin. On August 28, 2009, he announced his candidacy for the statewide office of secretary of state, challenging longtime Democratic incumbent Douglas La Follette in the general election. [1] King, however, went on to lose in the general election on Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010 after receiving slightly over forty-eight percent of the vote.

Professional experience

After a decade of serving as a neighborhood security aid in Milwaukee and managing restaurants, King moved to Meridan, Georgia where he helped a local ministry implement a Youth Center program. In 1996, he returned to Milwaukee to establish a prison ministry with the goal to rehabilitate the prison inmates. From 1997 until 1999, King managed a Transitional Living Facility named the "Mountain of the Lord House" which offered counseling, social assistance and spiritual guidance to men including former inmates, drug addicts and the homeless. Soon after he started a Transitional Home for Single Mothers called "The Lord House of Rest" with the goal of encouraging single mothers to become spiritually strong and to gain and maintain social-economic independence. He expanded his mission enterprise in 2001 with the S.W.E.E.P. (Soldiers, Walking, Evangelizing and Empowering People) Community Justice Center, which helped place individual in employment and provided secured housing.


Civil lawsuit

On Tuesday, October 26, 2010, a week before the general election, a thirty-one year old woman named Charlette Harris filed a civil lawsuit against David King, the Republican candidate in the Wisconsin Secretary of State contest, "alleging he impregnated her while she was drunk and unconscious." [2] Harris claims that King took her out to lunch on Thursday, August 26th after hiring her for a position at Buy Seasons, Inc., a New Berlin-based costume distributor, and got her so intoxicated that she passed out on a couch at King's residence "and woke up hours later in a bedroom with her pants unbuttoned." [3] Weeks later, Harris discovered she was pregnant and contends that King is the father because she is a lesbian and has not had sex with a man since her meeting with the Republican Secretary of State candidate. She claims she did not go to the police with her allegations, believing she would be fired from her job; at the time the suit was filed, Harris had already quit her position at Buy Seasons. Her legal challenge accuses King of battery, violation of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress; it also names Buy Seasons for negligent supervision.
