Meijer Likely Violated Campaign Laws
(wgvu) - GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Meijer Inc. says an internal
investigation revealed it likely violated Michigan campaign finance
laws in a clash with local officials over a proposed development in
Grand Traverse County.
The Grand Rapids-based retailer said it may have broken the law
by providing corporate funds to support a recall election of Acme
Township officials in 2007.
Meijer said another possible problem was its involvement in a
2005 referendum election to overturn a moratorium on big box
superstores in the township.
Meijer accepted responsibility for the possible violations and
pledged to cooperate with investigators.
