Wisconsin Representative Pulled into Illegal Campaigning Probe:


A trial involving illegal campaigning out of the state Capitol in Wisconsin has pulled Representative Mark Green (R-WI) into its orbit, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.  The investigation has already snared top Assembly Republicans for using their offices and positions to campaign and raise money, even using taxpayer money for campaign material. Green, who served in the Assembly from 1992 to 1998, denies any wrongdoing despite testimony from former staffers and high-level Republican Assemblymen implicating his Assembly office as running taxpayer funded campaigning.
