Michigan Attorney General to report future donors to his nonprofit fund
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has decided that future donors to his nonprofit "social welfare" fund should be disclosed to the public.
The decision announced late Friday comes in the wake of Governor Rick Snyder's decision to dissolve his 501c4 fund and create a new one.
Schuette's On Duty for Michigan fund has been able to legally accept unlimited amounts of money from anonymous donors. Fund board member Gary Gordon says the money has "reduced the burden on taxpayers" and improved the effectiveness of Schuette's office.
At the recommendation of the Republican attorney general, Gordon says the fund will go "above and beyond" by reporting future contributors to the public.
Snyder's fund came under scrutiny because it paid a top aide and some expenses of Detroit's emergency manager.
