LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Freedom Fund filed a campaign finance complaint today against Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s campaign committee for a brazenly illegal scheme resulting in the largest money grab ever seen in Michigan to ignore contribution limits.
“Gov. Whitmer is deliberately breaking the law and illegally taking millions of dollars from Hollywood and New York elites because she believes the rules don’t apply to her,” said Tori Sachs, executive director of the Michigan Freedom Fund. “Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson must compel Whitmer to immediately return the illegal contributions and issue sanctions on Whitmer’s campaign that are aligned with the most egregious illegal scheme in violation of contribution limits in Michigan history.”
Governor Whitmer has taken $3.4 million in illegal contributions from over 154 individual donors including $257,150 from Mark Bernstein (brother to Michigan Supreme Court Justice Richard Bernstein), and $250,000 each from Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, Patricia and Ronda Stryker, and Stacy Schuster of Samson Energy.
