OathSpending

This corporation was created in 2011 by the Professional Firefighters of Wisconsin. The state labor union for firefighters created this corporation to make independent expenditures to support Democratic candidates in Wisconsin elections. The corporation spent about $3,700 in the 2011 recall elections and nothing in the 2012 recalls. The firefighters' political action committee has been making direct campaign contributions to candidates for legislative and statewide offices for several years.

The corporation made independent expenditures supporting incumbent Republican Governor Scott Walker's Democratic opponent, Mary Burke.

Last active election: 2012

This organization is registered with the Government Accountability Board as an independent disbursement committee following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC.
