LANSING (WKZO) -- Democratic challenger Mark Schauer wants Governor Rick Snyder to come clean on who is providing the cash for his so-called “NERD” fund.
Schauer claims the funding mechanism has been specifically designed to be able to take in money without the donors being revealed. Its not illegal, but it isn't very transparent either.
Schauer now has a website dedicated to the issue. its at www.SecretiveSnyder.com
Governor Snyder was asked during questioning for depositions in the Detroit bankruptcy case this week, who the donors to the NERD fund were and he claimed he did not know. That it was handled by a committee.
Schauer claims its been used to fund everything from members of his staff to the luxury digs where Detroit EM Kevyn Orr is staying, to the skunk works operation to come up with ultra-cheap cyber schools.
