Defending Wisconsin PAC

Defending Wisconsin PAC was formed in February 2011 during the height of the protests against the successful passage of Republican Governor Scott Walker's plan to restrict public employee collective bargaining rights.
Documents filed with the Government Accountability Board show the organization's executive director is Jeremy Ryan. In 2010 Ryan, then 21, registered as a Democratic candidate for Wisconsin's Secretary of State but failed to make it on the ballot.
In late May 2012 the group paid for an ad against Governor Walker in a Madison-area newspaper.
