OathSpending

This political action committee is based in Whitewater, Wisconsin and was created to make independent expenditures in support of Democratic candidates Tom Barrett and Lori Compas.  Barrett and Compas challenged incumbent Republican Governor Scott Walker and GOP Senator Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau, respectively, in two of six recall elections held in June 2012.  Walker and the others faced recalls in response to severe restrictions Walker and his legislative allies put  on public employee collective bargaining rights in 2011.

The PAC only reported spending on behalf of Tom Barrett. Neither Barrett's nor Compas' challenge was successful.
