OathSpending

This Maryland-based Super PAC ,controlled by a group that advocates medical issues ranging from hospital preparedness to Medicare, first registered with the Government Accountability Board in 2014 to make independent expenditures in Wisconsin elections. Historically, the group has made independent expendtures to support Democrats for Congress and the presidency. The corporation filed paperwork with the state indicating it opposed Republican Governor Scott Walker's reelection on November 4, 2014. Walker faced Democrat Mary Burke in the general election.

The PAC and Progressive Kick Wisconsin IE Committee co-sponsored an online ad in October against Walker.

The group did not report any independent expenditures to the Government Accountability Board.

This organization is registered with the Government Accountability Board as an independent disbursement committee following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC.
