Victim of sex abuse Troy Merryfield fired back at JoAnne Kloppenburg and the Greater Wisconsin Committee by appearing in a new ad paid for by Citizens for a Stronger America. In the ad, Merryfield condemns the use of his pain for political gain. Earlier this week Merryfield sent a letter to the Greater Wisconsin Committee and JoAnne Kloppenburg asking them to pull the ad.
For over a week now, the Greater Wisconsin Committee has been running an ad that attacks Justice David Prosser for a 30 year old case involving sex abuse committed by a priest. Prosser was Outagamie County District Attorney at the time.
In a debate on March 28, Prosser asked Kloppenburg to condemn the ad after Troy Merryfield wrote a letter asking the ad to be pulled. Kloppenburg refused.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court election is Tuesday April, 5.
