Trek Bicycle disputes Walker campaign ad

Madison School Board member and former Trek Bicycle Executive Mary Burke.
Madison School Board member and former Trek Bicycle Executive Mary Burke.

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Trek Bicycle's president wants Governor Scott Walker to stop running his latest campaign ad which attacks his main Democratic challenger Mary Burke.

John Burke tells the A-P that Walker's ad is false, and the Republican governor should be embarrassed by it. The ad infers that John Burke's sister made decisions about locating Trek jobs overseas. He said he made all those decisions for the Waterloo firm, and Mary Burke didn't.

John Burke also said the ad wrongly implies that Trek employs children overseas.

The Walker camp said there's no disputing that Mary Burke made millions of dollars as the result of her former company's out-sourcing.
