Front Group Gives $385K to Amendment Backers
Amendment backers have received $385,000 from the Coalition for America's Families, a group that has run several "issue" ads against Democratic candidates, including Gov. Jim Doyle. The group is headed by a former chair of the state Republican Party.
Here's the Associated Press report.
Some of you may recall that this group ran an ad back in June 2005 attacking Gov. Doyle for supporting domestic partner benefits for UW employees. The ad made false allegations (as reported in this WISC-TV Ch 3 "Reality Check"), and they ended up cancelling at least part of their planned ad buy.
It's the money from this group that apparently made it possible for amendment backers to buy their TV ads.
The Capital Times also reported on this development.
