MADISON — Green Bay City Clerk Kris Teske was forced to put up with a lot of outside meddling in the weeks and months leading up to November’s presidential election.

But the frustrated election official made it clear to her superior that she would not break the law, according to new emails obtained by Wisconsin Spotlight.

“There is one more thing I want to say: If I am ever asked to do anything against the law the answer will be NO!” Teske wrote in an Aug. 26 email to Diana Ellenbecker, Green Bay’s Finance director and Teske’s immediate supervisor.

As Wisconsin Spotlight’s investigation has uncovered, liberal third-party groups funded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg were heavily involved in the elections of Wisconsin’s five largest cities. Zuckerberg and his wife donated $350 million to the Center for Tech and Civic Life, a left-leaning voter rights and election group. Green Bay received more than $1.6 million in CTCL funding, part of nearly $7 million in funding to the five cities. Longtime Democratic operative Michael Spitzer-Rubenstein, Wisconsin State Lead for the National Vote at Home Institute, CTCL’s partner organization, was embedded in Green Bay’s elections. read more elections.
