Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce is up on the air hitting Supreme Court candidate Jill Karofsky as soft on predators who commit “unthinkable crimes.”
A source told WisPolitics.com the WMC Issues Mobilization Council ad is running in the Green Bay and Milwaukee markets. WMC spokesman Nick Novak confirmed the ad is up in those markets, but declined to release further details, including where else it is running and in what other markets.
He described the buy as “significant.”
The narrator in the ad says Karofsky “calls herself a dedicated advocate for victims.” But the ad says she “went easy on predators that committed unthinkable crimes like no jail time for a monster who lured a 5-year-old into a bedroom where he sexually assaulted her.” The narrator adds the man also confessed to assaulting the girl’s sister.
The narrator goes on to call her judgment “inexcusable.”
The spot concludes, “Tell Judge Karofsky dangerous predators belong behind bars, not on the street.”
