MADISON (WKOW) --- Friends of Scott Walker has filed a complaint with television stations regarding the airing of Mary Burke's campaign ad.  They call the ad false and misleading and are looking for it to be removed.

In the complaint they say Burke's ad states that “under Walker, unemployment’s up.”  Friends of Scott Walker site from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics that unemployment rates have decreased since Walker took office from 7.8% to 6.3%.

“Mary Burke’s ad is false and blatantly misleading,” said Stephan Thompson, Friends of Scott Walker Campaign Manager. “Failure to remove this ad would fly in the face of factual reporting and deceive Wisconsin voters.”
