Spring: OathSpending

This committee is used by Planned Parenthood, which is the leading advocate and provider of reproductive health care for women in the state and the nation, to make independent expenditures to support Democratic candidates in legislative and statewide races in Wisconsin.

Less than a week before the April 3 spring elections, the committee filed paperwork with the state showing it may spend $500 on online advertising to support Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Rebecca Dallet.  Dallet, a Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge, is facing Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock for a 10-year seat on the state's highest court. 

Though officially a nonpartisan race, Dallet has drawn support from traditional Democratic allies and contributors and Screnock is backed by groups and contributors who usually support Republicans and conservatives.

Last active election: 2016

This organization is an unregistered independent expenditure committee that is required to report any such spending done within 60 days of a primary or an election to the Wisconsin Ethics Commission per Chapter 11, Subchapter X of Wisconsin Statutes.
