More attacks against Evers over teacher discipline cases

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Allies of Republican Gov. Scott Walker continue to hammer Democratic challenger Tony Evers over his handling of teacher discipline cases.

Evers is the state superintendent who won last week's Democratic primary and will face Walker in November. Much of the Republican argument against Evers to date has focused on his handling of teacher misconduct cases.

A new television ad released Thursday by the Wisconsin Republican Party touches on three cases. One involves a female Beloit Turner High School teacher accused of sending sexually explicit Snapchat messages to a male student.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the case is complex. The student declined to testify against the teacher and a Republican state lawmaker lobbied Evers' staff to hurry up the investigation so the teacher could get a new job.
