Progress Michigan refuses to identify donors

LANSING (WKZO) -- A group highly critical of Governor Rick Snyder's NERD Fund for being secretive is also refusing to identify the people funding it.  Progress Michigan executive director Lonnie Scott said on the public TV program "Off The Record" this weekend there is no comparison between the governor's fund and his organization.

Scott would reveal that the average donation to Progress Michigan is $23 and guesses the highest contributors have kicked in around $2,000 each.  He denied allegations that the group is the "attack dog" for the Michigan Democratic Party and said their function is to get information out to the media about pending legislation.
