Schauer Once Had Same Type Of Fund As Governor Snyder

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer, who has criticized Republican Gov. Rick Snyder for a nonprofit fund using money from anonymous donors, says he once had the same type of fund.

Schauer tells the Detroit Free Press ( ) for a story published Wednesday he never raised much money -- maybe $20,000 to $30,000 in all -- through the Schauer Community Fund, which started in 1999, was inactive after 2006 and dissolved in 2010.

Schauer says he doesn't have complete fund records.

Snyder announced this week that he was dissolving his New Energy to Reinvest and Diversify, or NERD, fund, which came under scrutiny because money was used to pay one of his top aides and some expenses for Detroit's state-appointed emergency manager.

Schauer has called on Snyder to disclose existing donors.
