Hacked Records Show Bradley Foundation Taking its Conservative Wisconsin Model National

Daniel Bice The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel,
Records make clear the Bradley Foundation no longer simply favors groups promoting its signature issues: taxpayer-funded school choice and increased work requirements for welfare recipients.
