- Republican Senator Mike Ellis denies doing anything illegal.
He also claims that a video taken without his knowledge is misleading.
A conservative activist oraganization known for hidden-camera videos, released the recording of Ellias yesterday.
In the video Ellis talks about raising money for a super PAC to attack his Democratic opponent Representative Penny Bernard Schaber.
It is against Wisconsin law for a candidate to coordinate with political action committees or outside groups.
Ellis says he understands that he looks ``terrible'' in the video.
However he never acted on the discussion after realizing the next day that what he was talking about was illegal.
