Soglin, Picketers, Target WMC's Negative Ads

Protestors took to the streets in Madison to picket the headquarters of the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce.

A variety of interests, including former Madison Mayor Paul Soglin are shining the light of disclosure on the WMC, which will raise and spend millions to knock incumbent State Supreme Court jurist Louis Butler off the court.

The WMC helped elect Annette Ziegler last year with a multi-million blizzard of "independent expenditure" ads: Madison's protestors seem to be set on making the WMC's role a little more public, especially for WMC members who may not know the extent to which their dues are funding sharp-edged, right-wing political tactics.
