The group spent nearly $6,000 supporting Democrats in seven Assembly and six Senate seats.
Previously, the national AFL-CIO used a similarly named committee called Working America to sponsor its outside electioneering activities in Wisconsin elections. That committee spent over $92,000 to support Democrats during recall and fall elections in 2011 and 2012.
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.
