RGA’s first ad goes after Evers over teacher who kept license after viewing porn at school

The Republican Governors Association today unveiled its first TV in the Wisconsin race, hitting Dem nominee Tony Evers over the case of a Middleton teacher who viewed pornography on a school computer, but didn’t lose his license.

The spot follows both Gov. Scott Walker and the state GOP running similar ads in the race.

The RGA spot features Leda Carlson, of Sheboygan, who says she expects educational professionals to keep her daughters safe when she sends them to school, and that’s why she can’t support Evers.

She says as superintendent, Evers “allowed a seventh grade teacher who had been caught viewing pornography in school to keep his teaching license,” adding the teacher “is still in the classroom with our kids today.”

“That is sickening and inexcusable,” Carlson says to close the spot. “Tony Evers put Wisconsin children at risk.”

The liberal One Wisconsin Now, which tracks media buys, says the RGA has $5.5 million in ads reserved between now and Election Day in the state.
