Fall: OathSpending

For Our Future Action Fund is a Washington, D.C.-based group that operates a Super PAC that make independent expenditures to support Democratic candidates. The group is also registered as a 501(c)(4) organization - a favorite U.S. Internal Revenue Service designation used by dark money groups that sponsor undisclosed issue ads in state and federal elections. The group is backed by national labor organizations, like the AFL-CIO, AFSCME, and the National Education Association.

For Our Future reported spending on mailings to support Democrat Mark Harris in the 18th Senate District, and brochures and staff to support Democratic candidates and oppose Republicans in the 14th Senate District and a half-dozen state assembly races.

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.
