Contributions by a candidate to his own campaign must be given to the candidate’s treasurer like other campaigns. Contributions from a candidate’s family members must be made from the family member’s funds. (Issued to Richard C. Kelly, August 28, 1974)
This opinion was reviewed by the Government Accountability Board pursuant to 2007 Wisconsin Act 1 and was revised to delete language specifying limits on a candidate’s contributions to their own campaign that were removed from statutes by 1977 Wisconsin Act 107. The opinion below was reaffirmed by the Government Accountability Board on June 9, 2008 and fully incorporates the revisions directed by the G.A.B.
