New Report Shows Millions Spent on Political Ads Unreported

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- A campaign watchdog group says in 2010, nearly 23-million dollars spent on political ads on television went unreported.  The Michigan Campaign Finance Network blames the state's weak election disclosure laws for allowing that money, and 70-million-dollars since 2000, to be spent on behalf of candidates without being reported.

The report said three candidates in 2010 campaigned without spending any of their own campaign funds on the ads.  They were Secretary of State Ruth Johnson, Supreme Court Justice Mary Beth Kelly and Democratic gubernatorial nominee Virg Bernero.
