OathSpending

This is a Madison-based corporation created to make independent expenditures to support Republican Governor Scott Walker's Democratic opponent in the June 5 recall election. Walker, the lieutenant governor and and four GOP state senators were targeted for recall because of the governor's successful 2011 plan to restrict public employee collective bargaining rights.

This group's treasurer is Morris Andrews, a former longtime leader of the Wisconsin Education Association Council - the state's largest teachers union - which gave $1 million late in 2011 to the Greater Wisconsin Committee to support its television advertising and other outside electioneering efforts against Walker.

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.
