2014 GAB 02.pdf13.43 KB

Please see the attachment above for the full opinion.


The Government Accountability Board agrees that contributions from a candidate’s own personal campaign committee do not count toward that same candidate’s annual aggregate limit.  The statutory language is clear that the annual aggregate limit applies only to individuals.  Wis. Stat. §11.26 (4).  This is so even if a candidate has made personal contributions in excess of $10,000 in any given calendar year to the candidate’s own personal campaign committee.
