Dem Party unveils TV ad slamming Walker

The state Dem Party Monday announced a new TV ad knocking the guv on “Walkergate.”

It's the first TV buy by anti-Walker forces since late last year. Since then Walker and allies have put millions on ads on the airwaves.

The 30-second spot, titled "Walkergate," includes footage of newscasters both during the 1970s Watergate scandal and discussing the ongoing John Doe probe tied to former Walker aides in Milwaukee County.

"Scott Walker has given a blizzard of conflicting and contradictory explanations about what he knew and when he knew it," Tate said in a conference call with reporters this morning.

Tate said the ad would be a rolling buy in multiple state TV markets, saying the party believes voters outside Madison and Milwaukee may not be as aware of the Milwaukee County investigation.

"I think it's important people know about that as we are about to have an election," Tate said.

The Walker campaign responded that the governor "immediately addressed any issues of misconduct when brought to his attention."

"The character assassination being conducted by Madison Democrats and big-government union bosses in this ad shows they are grasping at straws to deflect from the fact that Governor Walker’s reforms have laid the foundation for a more successful Wisconsin," the campaign said.
