Govt. Accountability Board changes rules on issue ads
An attorney for groups that put out issue ads at election time says he'll sue the state to prevent having to say who pays for those ads.
The state's Government Accountability Board voted unanimously Tuesday to require those who take out issue ads to say who pays for them.
But Madison attorney Mike Wittenwyler calls it unconstitutional attack on free speech.
The ads praise or attack candidates' stands on issues, but stop short of telling people how to vote.
