From the Darling campaign: "The latest smear launched by We Are Wisconsin, a union backed front group, appears to star the daughter of WEAC’s Executive Director Dan Burkhalter. Burkhalter, who has a $242,000 a year compensation plan, lives with his family in Middleton, roughly 90 miles away from Alberta Darling’s Senate District.

"Union bosses have been distorting the facts for years. Now it appears that WEAC is drumming up fake constituents to mislead voters in the 8th Senate District," said Darling’s campaign manager Andrew Davis. "Dan Burkhalter and his $242,000 a year compensation package would like you to believe that Republicans are taking money out of the classroom. Yet it’s union bosses like him who have made a fortune off of forced union dues and have fought against modest compensation reforms."

• Burkhalter’s daughter is spotted here at the 20 second mark in the commercial:
