Fraudster James O’Keefe Is At It Again In Wisconsin. Against a Republican.
Dark red vs red, get out the popcorn.
A new video by conservative activist James O’Keefe shows Wisconsin’s Republican Senate president vowing to illegally create his own super PAC in violation of state law.
In the undercover video recorded in a bar, state Senate President Mike Ellis tells O’Keefe and a companion: “I am putting together my own super PAC. My brother Dave is going to be in charge of it. We’re going to have $500,000. I don’t need to kiss anybody’s ass.” He then proceeds to list the funders of the super PAC, along with how much he expects each to contribute. Campaign law bars candidates from coordinating with such independent groups.
In the video, Ellis also said his fundraiser, Judi Rhodes Engels, would help run the super PAC, but she later told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that no such request was ever made. She quit his campaign hours after the video of his comments was posted online.
