Buckel up taxpayers

The Wisconsin Club for Growth has a special report on Chris Buckel, assembly candidate in the 29th district. You might want to take a special interest in his campaign. After all, you're paying for it.

Chris Buckel repeatedly used his taxpayer-funded email account to coordinate campaign activities even after he acknowledged that using the account would likely get him in trouble.

The first series of emails is between Buckel and his campaign consultants Joey & Donny Brunner. Buckel's finance report lists a payment to Joey Brunner for website and video development.

In the second series of emails, Buckel and fellow teacher Rhonda Malecek discuss Buckel's campaign website video, clearly using their taxpayer-funded computers and internet access to view campaign videos on Youtube. Buckel indicates that he placed a call to his consultant, Joey Brunner while viewing the political material from work.

There's plenty more at the Club for Growth site.
