Today, Julianne Appling has launched a radio campaign targeted towards Appleton, Eau Claire, and outlying LaCrosse on Democrat State Represenatives running for the State Assembly that are recieving large sums of special interest money from out of state donors that are part of an gay and lesbian agenda to win seats in conservative districts including the 57th, 68th, and 96th Districts of the Wisconsin State Assembly.
This conduit has been funded by wealthy former Quirk Software CEO Tim Gill who has been retired, and lately has been using his fortunes to advance the homsexual agenda. During a press conference call today, Wisconsin Family Action President Julianne Appling said that: “Gill has decided to target the state legislatures, because it is easy to use this conduit than going through the federal legislature, and it would be a building block to his credit to build his agenda.”
The conduit is targeting three conservative Assembly Districts in Wisconsin. Personally, I am a native of the 57th Assembly District, and as an Appleton native I find it disturbing that Jo Egelhoff’s opponent, Penny Bernard Schaber is recieving a large sum of out of state special interest money especially far away like Denver and Tulsa, Oklahoma, add on the fact that Schaber has been recieving money from a lot of retired and current teachers in the Appleton Area also, that Schaber is a candidate that has been bought by the out of state stealth conduit of Tim Gill and also the candidate of WEAC who has recieved the blessing of the Appleton Education Association, which is the Appleton Area School District Teacher’s Union. The Voters of the 57th Assembly District need to really question if Penny Bernard Schaber represents the values that Appleton voters look for. For a candidate, that is funded by out of state gay and lesbian special interests in a city that is very conservative, I conculde that Schaber would be out of touch with Appleton.
