VanderLeest files slander lawsuit against Democratic third-party organizations


GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Republican state Senate recall candidate David VanderLeest plans to take aim at what he calls the false accusations that have plagued his campaign.

VanderLeest announced Monday he was planning to file a slander lawsuit against several Democratic "Friends of Dave Hanson" campaign and third-party organizations that have attacked his campaign in print and television.

"False, slander, Chicago-style mob politics must stop in Wisconsin" VanderLeest said in front of the Brown County courthouse.
