The Greater Wisconsin Political Fund is out with a new TV ad that slams the guv for his use of state airplanes, urging voters to “ground Air Walker.”

The group said the ad will initially run in Green Bay and Milwaukee.

The spot opens with video from one of Scott Walker’s 2010 campaign commercials as he says he’s driving a 1998 Saturn with more than 100,000 miles on it as the screen reads “Scott Walker in 2010 bragging about saving money.”

“But Scott Walker’s changed,” the narrator says as the guv is shown exiting a plane.

The narrator goes on to say Walker now “insists on private flights, costing taxpayers over $900,000 with dozens of flights of less than 50 miles.” The narrator lists examples of Kenosha to Milwaukee and Appleton to Green Bay before saying Walker took “a taxpayer funded flight to film campaign ads, even using the state plane for a haircut.”

The spot goes back to the Walker 2010 ad with him saying, “Wouldn’t it be great if the government actually saved money?”

The narrator responds, “It actually would. Vote to ground Air Walker.”
