Wisconsin GOP files complaint over Trek Bicycles ad

Posted: Updated:

 MADISON (WKOW) – The Republican Party of Wisconsin has filed a complaint with the Government Accountability Board alleging that Trek Bicycle Corporation is using corporate dollars to aid Mary Burke’s campaign.

According to a release from the Republican Party of Wisconsin, Trek ran a full-page advertisement Sunday that appeared in newspapers in Madison and Milwaukee. They say the advertisement is an illegal contribution to Burke’s campaign under Wisconsin law.

The Associated Press reports that a spokesperson for Trek Bicycles says its advertisement complies with Wisconsin law and that it is free speech protected by the constitution.
