By Taylor W. Anderson Associated Press MADISON - The cameraman behind the video that led Republican state Senate President Mike Ellis to announce that he would not seek re-election has a message for politicians across the country: You could be next. In the wake of Ellis' announcement, which means the end of a 44-year career in the Wisconsin Legislature, videographer Christian Hartsock said politicians at all levels should prepare to be videotaped, photographed and recorded any time they're in public. But some critics say the tactics will chill free speech and could prevent more people from getting involved in local elections.
