The Government Accountability Board advises:

The candidate committee may organize as a non-stock corporation under Ch. 181, Wis. Stats., and is exempt from §11.38(1)(a)1., Wis. Stats., but only so long as the committee is formed for the express purpose of and is limited to political activities that may be undertaken by candidates and candidate committees under Chapter 11, Wis. Stats., and the rationale for so incorporating is to limit the committee’s liability consistent with Wisconsin law.  Despite its incorporation, the committee, the candidate and the treasurer are not exempt from liability specifically prescribed by ch. 11, Wis. Stats.
