Dear Alberta Darling, Nobody at the Wall Street Journal uncovered anything; it's just a case of an editorial writer making wild, unsubstantiated allegations

Little evidence suggests GAB out to get GOP.  (Wisconsin State Journal, 7/12/2015)
Alberta is late to the party.
Citing a Wall Street Journal editorial last week, Republican state lawmakers renewed and intensified their claim that the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board is politically biased and unfairly targeting conservatives. 
Little evidence supports such allegations.  
Moreover, GOP leaders are ignoring key facts about the GAB as they try to weaken if not disband the independent and nonpartisan watchdog agency that oversees campaign finance, elections, ethics and lobbying laws.
