Wisconsin’s Republican candidate for governor, Tim Michels, has called on people to take up “pitchforks and torches” in reaction to a story that detailed his giving to anti-abortion groups, churches that have taken anti-gay positions and a group that also opposes some forms of contraception.
On Wednesday, a story by reporter Corrine Hess revealed that Michels and his wife Barbara “donated $250,000 to anti-LGBTQ and anti-abortion groups, representing about 15% of his total donations in 2020. The Timothy and Barbara Michels Family Foundation funded organizations that oppose all forms of contraception and abortions in all cases. The foundation also spent thousands on churches with anti-LGBTQ beliefs.”
Michels quickly launched an attack on the newspaper, as Urban Milwaukee reported, releasing an email to his supporters declaring that “The media has reached a new low in Wisconsin,” and accusing the JS of “disgusting, anti-religious bigotry.”
