OathSpending

This is one of two corporations created by Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin in 2010 to make independent expenditures to support Democratic candidates for statewide office and the legislature in Wisconsin. Planned Parenthood is the leading advocate and provider of reproductive health care for women in the state and the nation.  This corporation spent nearly $796,000 on behalf of Democratic candidates in state elections between 2010 and 2012. Its counterpart, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin Inc., spent another $429,000 during the same period.

This corporation, like its counterpart, only registered with the state to make independent expenditures in the 2014 fall after it had begun independent electioneering activity supporting Democrat Mary Burke's campaign against incumbent GOP Governor Scott Walker.

Last active election: 2012

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.
