Fall: OathSpending

This is a new unregistered independent expenditures committee run by the AFL-CIO labor union in Washington, D.C., which supports Democratic candidates for state and federal offices.

About two weeks before the Nov. 6 election, the committee first reported spending towrd online advertising on behalf of Democratic candidate for governor Tony Evers.  Evers faces GOP Gov. Scott Walker, who is seeking a third four-year term.

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.
