[Madison, WI] – The Republican Party of Wisconsin today filed a complaint against the Minocqua Brewing Company Super PAC with the Federal Elections Commission for a myriad of reporting failures.

While the Minocqua Brewing Company purports to send 5 percent of their profits to their PAC, they fail to report any such transfer, or to disclose these donors in campaign finance reports. The complaint alleges the Super PAC has also failed to include required disclaimer notices on solicitations for donations, failed to file required reports for an independent expenditure, and unlawfully used corporate funds to provide direct support to federal candidates.

The Republican Party of Wisconsin released the following statement from Executive Director Mark Jefferson:

“It appears that Minocqua Brewing Company Super PAC has repeatedly failed to play by the rules. Though their spending hasn’t yielded any significant results, ineffectiveness does not excuse illegal activity and the FEC needs to take action.”
