Democracy Campaign to Air TV Ad
January 24, 2005
Madison - To reach a broader audience with an indictment of dysfunctional state government and a call to action on behalf of political reform, the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign will begin airing a television ad in several state TV markets in the next week. (Watch ad.)
The animated 30-second ad features a depiction of a fiddler with two heads - an elephant’s and a donkey’s - and a Capitol engulfed in flames. The ad will air on stations in Milwaukee, Green Bay, Madison, Eau Claire, La Crosse and Wausau.
Here is the ad’s script:
There are a lot of burning issues at the state Capitol . . .
billion-dollar deficits . . .
vanishing manufacturing jobs . . .
a health care crisis . . .
and felony charges against legislative leaders.
It’s time to put out the fires . . .
And stop this incessant fiddling.
Demand clean government and REAL democracy.
