 Reported spending: $12,011

This Washington-based organization registered with the Government Accountability Board as a corporation on March 24, 2011 to conduct independent expenditures in two elections. First, it supported JoAnne Kloppenburg in her attempt to unseat incumbent Supreme Court Justice David Prosser in the April 5 election. It was also involved in the special election to fill the Milwaukee County Executive office vacated by Governor Scott Walker. It supported political newcomer and winning candidate Chris Abele over Republican Assembly member Jeff Stone, an ally of Walker's.

Working America is an affiliate of the AFL-CIO.

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.
