Special: OathSpending

This committee was created in 2010 by the left-leaning Greater Wisconsin Committee for the sole purpose of making independent expenditures in Wisconsin elections. Between 2010 and 2017 it spent $11.7 million in Wisconsin state elections.

It reported spending on online advertising — here and here — in support of the Democratic candidate in the special election to fill a vacancy in the 10th Senate District.

Last active election: 2017

This organization is registered with the Government Accountability Board/Wisconsin Ethics Commission as an independent expenditure committee following the January 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC.
