Wisc. GOP Cites Election Bribery On Behalf Of Progressive Judge

  • The Republican Party of Wisconsin has filed a complaint against a liberal group accused of election bribery in a get-out-the-vote scheme to elect liberal Milwaukee County Judge Janet Protasiewicz to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
  • The GOP’s complaint, however, alleges Wisconsin Takes Action and Organizing Empowerment PAC failed to file as a political action committee in the the state of Wisconsin, a violation of campaign finance law.
  • During a recent Wisconsin Takes Action training session, an organizer said the group is “focused on putting forth progressive ideas and implementing progressive laws, so, you know, we really are looking forward to her [Protasiewicz] as the candidate for this upcoming election.”
