Stung by criticism over its political activities, the state’s largest business lobby is rethinking the tenor of its election-season advertising and how it sells itself to the public.

The move by Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce comes in the wake of recent criticism from former UW-Madison Chancellor John Wiley, major Dane County employer Epic Systems and liberal groups over its campaign ads and political activities.

“If we’re going to be perceived as the sleaze carriers in the state, I don’t want that and our members don’t want that,” Jim Haney, WMC president, said in a recent interview. “If we have to reposition ourselves a bit, we’ll do so.”

Wow, and this all happened without government intervention.
