Here is the latest Wisconsin news from The Associated Press:

RACINE, Wis. (AP) — State Senator John Lehman says his campaign wasn't responsible for a tweet that called a Republican constituent a "moronic fool." Lehman says neither he nor his staff posted Thursday's tweet. The Racine Democrat says his campaign's Twitter account had a simple password, and he believes a "mischief-maker" hacked it. The tweet was directed to Republican blogger Tamra Varebrook of Union Grove. A Journal Times of Racine report says Lehman is deactivating the Twitter account.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A 24-year-old Madison man has been arrested on tentative charges of secretly filming a female roommate while she was in the bathroom. The 22-year-old woman says she noticed a reflecting lens on the floor. Neither person's name has been released.

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — A 35-year-old Oshkosh woman who pleaded guilty to having sex with three teenage boys has been sentenced to just under two years in jail. Tessa Gray apologized to the victims and their family in court Friday.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Dry conditions in southern Wisconsin not only affect crops and home gardens, the drought has an impact on the insect population. University of Wisconsin-Madison entomologist Phil Pellitteri says the boxelder population is likely to explode in the coming months. Pellitteri says the boxelder bug does really well when it's dry.
