RebelPundit has learned the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC) PAC dumped nearly $1.3 million into the coffers of the left-wing Greater Wisconsin Committee PAC on Friday.

A Government Accountability Board GAB-3 form filed Sunday documents the transfer of $1,298,000 on August 1.

The Greater Wisconsin Committee, which is currently running a reported $400,000 in ads against Milwaukee Co. Sheriff David Clarke, has been a conduit for left-wing money in recent years. They are also known for running some of the sleaziest ads in recent Wisconsin history – including an ad in 2011 that attempted to smear Justice David Prosser as complicit in a cover-up of a priest’s sexual abuse.

On August 1, The Journal Sentinel reported:

Greater Wisconsin has purchased nearly $70,000 worth of time each on WISN-TV (Channel 12) and WITI-TV (Channel 6) and more than $60,000 on WTMJ-TV (Channel 4) and $50,000 on WDJT-TV (Channel 58) over the two-week period, according to Federal Communications Commission filings.

It is not clear who is paying for the Greater Wisconsin campaign.

WEAC $1.3 MIL to GWC

Wisconsin’s political left-wing went haywire after Clarke encouraged citizens to take firearm safety classes in order to defend themselves in 2013, in order to defend themselves. They have placed a growing target on him ever since.

Clarke is facing a challenge from Chris Moews in Tuesday’s upcoming Democrat Primary Election.

Clarke responded to the ads in a statement, saying, “Special interests are spending hundreds of thousands to defeat me….They know when it comes to protecting Milwaukee County residents, I won’t back down. And I won’t let the career politicians in Milwaukee or Madison play games with our budget nor their safety.”

One would expect that the money from WEAC will also result in ads targeting Gov. Scott Walker ahead of the November election.

In 2011 and 2012, the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign estimated that the Greater Wisconsin Committee spent nearly $10.7 million dollars on the various recall campaigns.
