Conservative group targets Republican Mike Ellis Submitted: 04/10/2014
Madison - 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. (Copyright 2014 Associated Press - All Rights Reserved)
