Spring: OathSpending

This is a Washington, D.C.-based organization that was organized in 2014 and works with state-based groups throughout the country to advance numerous Democratic causes, including worker rights, immigration, racial and economic justice, gerrymandering, and voting rights, among others.

About a week before the April 3 spring elections in Wisconsin, the group filed paperwork to sponsor outside electioneering activities in support of Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Rebecca Dallet.  Dallet, a Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge, faces Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock for the open seat on the high court.

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.
