ICYMI: Walker Ad Shows Consequences of Evers Failing to Revoke License of Porn-Watching Teacher

[Madison, Wis.] – On Wednesday, Scott Walker’s campaign released a new TV ad depicting the consequences of Evers failing to revoke the license of a teacher who spread pornography in the classroom.

Even after it was revealed that the teacher repeatedly watched pornographic material in the classroom, and commented on the bodies of middle school girls, Tony Evers refused to take action and revoke the license of the teacher – who is still teaching today. Tony Evers failed to do his job and stand up for Wisconsin’s students.

Wisconsin governor: Rival failed to act on teacher with porn

Gov. Scott Walker’s first attack ad of the Wisconsin gubernatorial race released Wednesday refers to a sex act while accusing Democratic candidate Tony Evers of not doing enough to revoke the license of a teacher who viewed pornographic images on a school computer. …

The Walker ad quotes from a Middleton-Cross Plains School District report from 2010 that found Harris had suggested to one student that she “brush up on her sex skills because that’s all she’ll be good at later in life.” Wording from the report referring to oral sex is shown on the screen. …

The school investigation into Harris began in 2009 when the district received a complaint from a female teacher about emails containing nudity, crude jokes and other inappropriate material that Harris was viewing and sending to other school employees.

Harris was fired in 2010, but an arbitrator determined he should have been suspended so that his punishment would be on par with those given to other teachers who looked at explicit materials or emails while at work.

A circuit court judge and state appeals court upheld the arbitrator’s ruling and Harris returned to work in 2014 – which the ad notes with a closing line: “The teacher is still in the classroom with young girls.”
