Fourteen candidates for the Wisconsin state legislature, along with two partisan campaign committees, reported receiving a total of $14,000 in campaign contributions in the second quarter of 2016 from two Walmart political action committees that actually aren’t doing business in the state.
The Wal-Mart Stores Inc. PAC for Responsible Government asked to terminate its fundraising and spending activities in Wisconsin last October, and filed its last report in March.
And WAL-PAC, the company’s federal PAC, never registered to do business in the state, according to Wisconsin Ethics Commission records.
Below is a list of the candidates and committees that reported receiving donations between late May and late June from the Walmart PACs that aren’t operating in Wisconsin.
|6/27/2016||Republican Assembly Campaign Committee||R||$3,000|
|6/17/2016||State Senate Democratic Committee||D||$2,000|
|6/30/2016||VanderMeer, Nancy Lynn||R||$500|
|5/31/2016||Krug, Scott S||R||$500|
