Fall: OathSpending

This unregistered group appears to be affiliated with the national group Young Americans for Liberty that formed in the wake of former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul's unsuccessful campaign in the 2008 Republican primaries for president.  The national group describes itself as a libertarian and conservative youth organization.

A day before the August 14 primaries, it reported spending on behalf of Republican candidate Shae Sortwell who is in a two-way primary for the open 2nd Assembly District seat.

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.
