Governing reports about the use of issue advocacy televisoin ads in Wisconsin. These ads esacpe disclosure laws because they don't support any specific candidate. But the result can be that candidates have no connection to those who run ads supporting them and no idea who's behind opposition ads. In close races, like in Wisconsin, the amount spent on these ads can be vastly more than the candidates spend.
