Evidence of action is lacking
Attorney general candidate Brad Schimel "is in cahoots with Wisconsin Right to Life to make abortion a crime in Wisconsin."
In this case, DA stands for 'Distorted Ad'
"As district attorney, Susan Happ took $180,000" in a "shady" land deal "from a man charged with multiple felony counts of sexual assault before she offered him a deferred prosecution."
Didn't dominate among Dems
"An overwhelming majority of Republican and Democrat law enforcement leaders have endorsed Brad Schimel."
Falls are number one
Heroin and prescription opioids are "the number one cause of accidental or preventable death in Wisconsin."
No merit raises, but many across-the-board raises
"Last year, I was involved with an effort to to help prosecutors get their first pay raise in more than 10 years."
Some additional prosecutors and other staff
"I’m running the second-largest county district attorney’s office … at 1985 staffing levels."
Claim is broader than the data
"At some point in their lives, 99% of women use birth control."
