HARTLAND, Wisc. – This morning, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and their affiliated USA Today Wisconsin papers attacked Tim and Barbara Michels for their charitable giving. They did not examine if Tony Evers donated to charity at all. Instead, they attacked the Michels family for giving to Christian causes.
The Michels Campaign released the following statement from Tim Michels:
“The dishonest media are so in the tank for Tony Evers, they have now stooped so low as to attack mainstream churches and religious organizations. For four years, they turned a blind eye to the consequences of Evers’ many failures and are now all in as accomplices in his desperate campaign to demonize me, my company, my family, and now even our personal charitable giving. Assaulting the reputations of Catholic nuns, some of the largest churches in Wisconsin, and even cancer research is shameful, and the people of Wisconsin should not tolerate this disgusting, anti-religious bigotry.”
