LA CROSSE, WI — A La Crosse Public Schools custodian broke state election laws when he sent an e-mail to coworkers, encouraging their support of a candidate for state office, according to the La Crosse Tribune.
In April 2011, Jeffrey Greene sent an e-mail from his office on a workday, and though he was told to recall the e-mail later the same day, 45 people had already opened the message, the article stated.
According to the article, in the e-mail, Greene asked the other public school workers to help with the election campaign of Representative Steve Doyle, who later won the 94th Assembly District seat vacated by Republican Mike Huebsch.
Wisconsin law restricts public employees from campaigning for a political candidate during work hours, the article noted.
Greene, who admitted to the wrongdoing, agreed to pay a $100 fine, the article added.
