Special election: OathSpending

This is a corporation created in 2010 to make independent expenditures and one of four arms of a group most commonly known as the Greater Wisconsin Committee. Greater Wisconsin, which discloses little of its fundraising, gets the bulk of its cash from labor unions and Democratic ideological groups that are also supported by wealthy business interests.

The organization spent over $30,000 supporting Democratic candidates in the 21st and 82nd Assembly District special elections.

Last active election: 2012

This organization is registered with the Government Accountability Board following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC as a corporation making independent disbursements.
