|Description||A "protest" Democratic candidate in a northwestern Wisconsin recall election is urging his Democratic opponent to give up her candidacy because of unauthorized emails she wrote in March during demonstrations over Gov. Scott Walker's budget-repair bill. |
Isaac Weix, who has run in the past as a Republican candidate for Assembly, is running in a Democratic primary against Shelly Moore, a teacher and official of the Wisconsin Education Association Council, the state's biggest teachers union.
The Republican Party of Wisconsin filed a complaint this week asking the state Government Accountability Board to investigate Moore for campaign related email she's accused of writing on her Ellsworth school email account.
In one email, she apparently wrote,"We are not supposed to use school email, but since all of our rights are being taken away, I don't frankly care."
