MADISON — A new ad from the out-of-state billionaire Koch brothers confirms what Wisconsinites have known for years: Republican Senate candidate Leah Vukmir sold out Wisconsin years ago, as she’s worked to advance corporate special interests’ agenda as a national leader of Koch brothers-funded ALEC.

And here’s the news report that the Kochs are citing in the ad:
[Leah Vukmir is] for ending the state and local tax deduction, known as SALT.Vukmir took that stance as a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council, the corporate-backed group that brings together conservative lawmakers from across the country.Vukmir, a member of the group’s board of directors, was one among 140 lawmakers from 36 states to sign on to ALEC’s open letter to Congress calling for an elimination of the SALT deduction.
