A candidate for elective state office may not accept anything of pecuniary
value, including salary or wages, from a business or organization that
employs a lobbyist. An individual employed by a principal may, consistent
with statutes administered by the Ethics Board, take a leave of absence from
his or her employment during the candidacy as long as the employer does not
furnish the candidate with any salary or other benefits that had not already
vested in the candidate prior to the candidacy.

[1991 Act 269 amended §13.625, Wisconsin Statutes, to permit a principal
that employs an individual who becomes a candidate for election to a state
office to continue to pay, and the individual to receive, the individual's salary
or wages and employee benefits during the candidacy provided the employer
or candidate can clearly and convincingly demonstrate that the employment
is independent of the candidacy.] OEB 92-14
