Walker attacks Evers over teacher who viewed porn at school

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's first attack ad of the governor's race refers to a sex act while criticizing Democrat Tony Evers for not revoking the license of a middle school teacher who viewed pornographic images on a school computer.

The ad released Wednesday continues the argument that state schools chief Evers didn't do enough to remove Middleton teacher Andrew Harris from the classroom. Evers contends he didn't have the power to do that and worked to change the law so he could.

The ad quotes from the school investigation report that found Harris had suggested that one female student "brush up on her sex skills." The narrator also says the teacher "commented on the chest sizes of middle school girls."

Harris was fired in 2010, but an arbitrator determined he should have been suspended. State courts upheld the arbitrator's ruling to give Harris his job back.
