The community news site was following up on a report by the Orange County Register's veteran political reporter Martin Wisckol, who questioned Madison's real name, age and college education. Madison had no explanation for why he'd told the paper he was born on Jan. 29, 1957, when his current voter registration shows his birth date as Jan. 29, 1953. Informed that Orange County Superior Court documents show someone named John Mancuso successfully had his name changed to Jon Jay Madison on Nov. 15, 1994, Madison reportedly told Wisckol he did not know a John Mancuso and that he's had his current name since birth.More »
