Failures to report contributions from PAC’s exceeding legal limits
[Madison, WI] — Today, the Republican Party of Wisconsin is filing a complaint with the Wisconsin Ethics Commission against the political action committee One Vote at a Time and 23 state Democrat campaigns for conspiring to violate Wisconsin campaign finance laws ahead of the 2018 election. The Republican Party of Wisconsin released the following statement from Executive Director Mark Morgan regarding the complaint:
“What these Democrats are doing is illegally circumventing campaign finance law to advance their political fortunes. Democrats will stop at nothing to take Wisconsin backward including this blatant violation of the public trust. These candidates cannot be trusted to run honest campaigns and certainly cannot be trusted in office.”
The complaint cites violations between One Vote and the various campaigns that range from failing to disclose in-kind contributions, to the accepting contributions valued far outside of the limits allowed under Wisconsin law.
