SPOTTED: Leah Vukmir Attends ALEC Gala at Trump Hotel DC

Last week, Vukmir said she was "proud" of advancing ALEC's agenda; This week, she tried to hide her attendance at ALEC's 45th Anniversary Gala

Vukmir has earned tens of thousands in campaign contributions from ALEC members in exchange for advancing their corporate special interest agenda at the expense of Wisconsinites

MADISON -- SPOTTED: Republican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir attending Wednesday night's ALEC 45th Anniversary Gala at Trump Hotel DC. Earlier in the day, Vukmir ducked Associated Press and Milwaukee Journal Journal inquiries as to whether she would attend the ALEC Gala.

Vukmir's reluctance to come clean about attending the ALEC Gala was out of character, given that Vukmir recently claimed she's "proud" of her work to advance ALEC's agenda -- legislative efforts that include Vukmir championing at least 24 ALEC model bill-inspired measures in exchange for tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions.
