LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Michigan's Secretary of State office is looking into Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero's campaign following complaints about contributions.
State records show the mayor's campaign paid two staff members back in June and days later those same two members donated money to the campaign of At-Large Council Member Kathie Dunbar.
Three formal complaints were made to the Michigan Secretary of State against Mayor Virg Bernero and two campaign staff members.
Chris Breznau and Elizabeth Hart received money from the mayor's campaign on June 14th
Three days later both put $1,000 each towards At-Large Council Member Kathie Dunbar's re-election campaign.
"I'm confident that the secretary of state is going to get a response by Friday and that everything is on the up and up," said At-Large Council Member Kathie Dunbar
It's illegal under Michigan election law to make payments to people with the agreement or arrangement that the person will contribute to a campaign.
It's unclear if that was the case here as these are just allegations at this point.
"I find it interesting that this story broke in June and that somebody now filed a complaint within ten days of the election and it's filed by somebody that doesn't even live in the state," Dunbar said.
Council Member Dunbar wouldn't answer whether she will keep the money or answer other questions but did describe the situation this way.
"For me it's just an example of 11th hour election engineering, the whole negative campaign thing, it's fine we expect this every year," Kathie Dunbar said.
The Secretary of State sent letters to Bernero and the two campaign staff members, they have until Thursday to respond.
The mayor told 6 News last week in an email, while he doesn't believe a mistake was made,he is reviewing the concerns raised and will provide a timely response.
