"She's telling the Secretary of State one thing, and she's telling the voters another. What is the truth?"
-- Lon Johnson, Michigan Democratic Party chairman
Michigan Democrats filed a formal complaint Thursday, looking for clarification on senate candidate Terri Lynn Land's campaign finances. The party is calling for a state and a federal audit of Land's business experience and self-funding. Democrats want to know how Land was able to donate $2.9 million to her own campaign, after the Detroit Free Press reported she doesn't have those kind of assets. "She's telling the Secretary of State one thing, and she's telling the voters another. What is the truth? And because we're not getting answers from her now, we are forced to send a formal complaint to the Secretary of State's office," said Michigan Democratic Party chairman Lon Johnson. The Land campaign says the money came from an account she shares with her husband, and the original filing was miscategorized. It describes the funding as being in full accordance with Federal Election Commission precedent.
