Have just been filed by Protecting Michigan Taxpayers.
Protecting Michigan Taxpayers today announced the filing of multiple campaign finance complaints against personal injury lawyer and failed gubernatorial candidate Geoffrey Fieger and his law firm, Fieger & Fieger, P.C. in connection with hidden spending by the firm in support of Proposal 2, the government union boss power grab overwhelmingly rejected by voters on Tuesday.
"Geoffrey Fieger may be a high-powered personal injury lawyer but that doesn't mean he is above the law," said Jared Rodriguez, Spokesman for Protecting Michigan Taxpayers. "His decision to flout campaign finance law and to illegally hide his spending on behalf of Proposal 2 from voters raises serious questions about the real amount of money spent by big labor on this failed, divisive attempt to put union bosses above the members they claim to represent."
Violations of Michigan's campaign finance law committed by Fieger and referenced in today's complaint include:
