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."[17] 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."[17]
