Lassa recall ads questioned

State Senator Julie Lassa (D-Stevens Point)

UNDATED (WSAU) The state democratic party wants an investigation into newspaper ads calling for the recall of state senator Julie Lassa. The ads ran in the Stevens Point Journal, the Marshfield News-Herald, and the Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune last month. They were paid for by a group calling itself Citizens of District 24. The group is not registered as a political action committee, which means their spending on advertising is limited to $25. The ads cost nearly $500.

The democratic party filed a complaint with the Government

Accountability Board, which oversees recall petition drives. The ads were paid for by Mark Scotch of Plover, who refused to comment on the investigation.

The deadline for turning in petition signatures to recall Lassa is May 17th. Currently there are 9 recall elections scheduled; 6 involve state senate Republicans and 3 are against Democrats.
