'Dark Money' Influencing Tom Leonard Campaign
Updated: Mar 21, 2022
This very expensive mailer, paid for by A Better Michigan Tomorrow, a non-profit, is the third one of its kind that has been mailed to households in Emmet County.
All feature Tom Leonard, MI Attorney General candidate, whose opponents are Matt Deperno and Rep. Ryan Berman, but Leonard is flanked by different lawmakers in the other two mailers
According to Simon Schuster, of the Michigan Campaign Finance Network, A Better Michigan Tomorrow is a "dark money group" that was created in September 2021. Opines Schuster, "Because it was created so recently, the unsettling truth is that we may not even have a picture who may be behind it financially until the end of next year - if that!" Hmm. So why are they promoting Tom Leonard? We may never know. In the meantime, let's advocate for the sunshine of transparency in this darkness.
