Spring: OathSpending

This is an unregistered committee controlled by the Washington D.C.-based Service Employees International Union - SEIU.  The committee, which does not have to report the source or amount of its fundraising to the state, intends to make independent expenditures in Wisconsin elections on behalf of Democratic candidates.

At the end of February it reported spending over $130,000 on canvassing and brochures to support Court of Appeals Chief Judge Lisa Neubauer for the state Supreme Court. Neubauer is running against fellow Court of Appeals Judge Brian Hagedorn to fill the seat being vacated by former Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson.

Last active election: 2018

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.
