Fifty-five-year-old Denise Robinson, who like Wheatley is a Democrat, says the dispute isn't about the $100, it's about the principle.
The paralegal says, "If my state rep will breach a contract for $200, then what is he doing for $200,000."
Wheatley tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ( http://bit.ly/Q5biLZ) that the whole thing is a misunderstanding.
Wheatley acknowledges fliers for the Sept. 8 event tout a $200 prize, but says contestants were told the prize would depend on the number of entrants who paid $10 each—and that the prize was smaller because fewer people entered than expected.
Robinson says Wheatley should honor the flier.
