Candidate supported: David Prosser
Reported spending: $11,330

This political action committee is controlled by the Family Research Council, a Washington D.C.-based conservative organization that opposes abortion and promotes marriage between men and women.

The national group’s state arm, the Wisconsin Family Council, has spent an estimated $150,000 on independent expenditures and phony issue ads spending in Wisconsin since 2006 to support Republican candidates for the legislature and a pro-marriage referendum.

The Faith Family Freedom Fund registered with the state's Government Accountability Board to make independent expenditures to support incumbent Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser in the April 5 spring election against challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg, an assistant state attorney general. The group sponsored radio ads supporting Prosser on 34 stations across the state during the week before election day.  You can hear the radio ad it ran below.
