Following reports of a 6-million dollar tax credit going to Ashley furniture from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, there's a new report saying...the owners of the Arcadia-based company gave 20-thousand dollars to Governor Scott Walker's re-election campaign.

The WEDC is a board led by the governor in charge of bringing jobs to Wisconsin. As part of the tax credit agreement, Ashley will be allowed to expand its headquarters and cut 19-hundred jobs from its company. 

There is no stipulation, requiring Ashley to create jobs to receive the tax credit.
