Illinois Multi-Millionaire Super PAC Launches False Attack Ads
Super PAC Attacks Get Pulled
MADISON – Only days after a super PAC, funded by Illinois multi-millionaire, Richard Uihlein, launched a $650,000 radio ad buy, stations were compelled to pull the false attacks from the air because of the ad’s unfounded lies.
“Wisconsinites are tired of the faceless political attacks filling the airwaves instead of candidates addressing the real issues facing our state. This grave issue was exploited by partisan political groups in the last election, and those same groups are trying to revive these kinds of attacks against Tammy. A shady, out-of-state super PAC will not be able to spread falsehoods and buy a seat in the Senate because the facts just aren’t on their side: a Senate Select Committee on Ethics reviewed the complaints and concluded these attacks are not grounded in the truth.” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Brandon Weathersby.
