People have actually believed this ad and Gableman could lose because of it.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A prosecutor says more claims in an ad attacking Supreme Court challenger Michael Gableman as soft on sex offenders are misleading.
The Wisconsin Education Association Council is running the ad that claims Gableman gave lenient sentences to two sex offenders. The teacher's union has endorsed Justice Louis Butler in the April 1 election.
The ad cites the case of a man convicted of sexually assaulting a girl. It claims he videotaped the attacks and made her watch them, but Gableman only sentenced him to one year in jail.
Burnett County District Attorney Ken Kutz says investigators never found videotapes and charges related to them were dropped.
He also says Gableman sentenced the man to a stiffer sentence than he recommended.
All because of a WEAC lie!
