He headed up the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, a watchdog group for following the money given to candidates and their ethics. He pushed for setting up the state Government Accountability Board, a nonpartisan group of retired judges, to watch over the ethics of politicians.
McCabe will not accept any contribution over $200 at a time, with a cap of $1,000 total.
Listen to his interview 7:30 to 8 p.m. July 6 on Wisconsin Public Television, channel 21, “Here and Now.”
