Fall: OathSpending

This is a new independent expenditure committee created by Planned Parenthood, which is the leading advocate and provider of reproductive health care for women in the state and the nation. Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin already operates two other independent expenditure committees - Planned Parenthood Advocates of WI Political Fund (active in the 2016 election) and Planned Parenthood Advocates of WI, Inc. - which spent about $1.8 million between 2010 and 2015 supporting Democratic legislative and statewide candidates.

By the end of October, this committee reported spending over $150,000 on brochures and mailings to support Democratic candidates in Assembly Districts 50, 51, 68 and 85 and in the 18th Senate District, the same races where its other independent expenditure commitee was active.

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.
