GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Outside group-funded mailers—a campaign technique also known as “dark money”—is trickling down from the national level to the local level.“Some of these advertisements are often times misleading. They include sources but they can be vague. it can require different research on the part of the person that might want to know more. And in some cases the comments can be just outright wrong or false,” Associate Professor of Political Science at UWGB David Helpap said.Helpap explained outside parties, groups or businesses funding the ads could believe it’s an investment that might lead to local politics reaching the state or federal government.The advertisements can create a challenge for candidates who do not approve the messages. Such is the case with district one in Green Bay where outside ads came into play.
