Timely donation during Michigan plastic bag bill passage raises eyebrows
The first line of a release from the Michigan Campaign Finance Networkreads:
"The same day a Senate panel began considering whether to block local efforts to curb the use of plastic bags, the Senate Republican Campaign Committee reported receiving a $20,000 contribution from the political action committee of one of Michigan's largest retailers."
According to MCFN executive director Craig Mauger, that retailer is Meijer.
Mauger sat down with us today to talk about that contribution and the role of money in politics.
