Lake Superior State University's Political Science Club and the League of Women Voters are co-sponsoring the visit of a noted expert on the impact of soft money on Michigan politics. Rich Robinson, executive director of the Michigan Campaign Finance Network (MCFN), will present Dark Money in Politics this Monday, Sept. 23, at 6 p.m. in the East Superior Room of LSSU's Cisler Center.
Robinson's lecture explores the culture of non-disclosing, nonprofit organizations that have secretly pumped millions of dollars into Michigan campaigns. Specifically, Robinson speaks about the 2012 Michigan Supreme Court campaigns, where some 11 million dollars worth of donations for Supreme Court television advertisements went undocumented.
Robinson has worked as the executive director of the MCFN for more than 12 years. During his time at the MFCN, he has been the principal investigator of the Citizen's Guide to Michigan Campaign Finance and has been featured in the Detroit Free Press, The Detroit News, and The Lansing State Journal for his commentaries on money in politics.
Students and community members are invited to attend free of charge. Seating begins at 5:30 p.m.
