MADISON -- A campaign volunteer in Madison is now recanting his story about being attacked.
Madison police were investigating an attack on 29-year-old Kyle Wood, a volunteer for Chad Lee's Second District Congressional campaign. Wood reported he was attacked in his home Wednesday, October 24th.
He was taken to a hospital and later released.
