"Rep. Don Friske (R-Merrill) said he knew state workers were helping on his first campaign in 2000 but believed they were volunteers off the state payroll. Friske's name was mentioned by Jensen trial witnesses at least three times last week.

Friske was not concerned that the issue would be used against him in the fall campaign, saying court records will show he was not aware of campaign activity.
