Another questionable flier, this one in a state Senate recall race. In Racine, Democratic challenger John Lehman asked Senator Van Wannggaard about it during their debate this week. Lehman handed Wanggaard the flier, which states that people are not safe because of votes Lehman took. “I ask him to disavow that,” said Lehman, who Wanggaard defeated in 2010.
Wanggaard said the flier was from the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute. “Apparently they must have some concerns cocerning the early release that you worked towards and voted on,” he said.

Leham did vote for an early release program which Republicans repealed. Earlier this week, a flier circulating in Janesville named teachers and listed their salaries.
