Michigan campaigns have been spending record amounts of money off the books
The Michigan Campaign Finance Network today released its 2012 Citizen’s Guide to Michigan Campaign Finance entitled "Descending into Dark Money."
Record amounts of money were spent in Michigan with even less accountability for who was spending that money.
In his press release today, the man behind the Michigan Campaign Finance Network, Rich Robinson, stated:
"We are victims of an anachronistic interpretation of the Michigan Campaign Finance Act that allows unaccountable dark money to dominate our politics. Citizens should have the right to know whose money is driving critically important election outcomes, so they can evaluate how campaign spending correlates to policy outcomes."
Robinson joined us in the studio today to discuss the issue.
Listen to the full interview above.
