Weaver is not alone in a lack of transparency in their campaign finance reports. Oddly many of the missing occupations and business addresses that are missing from donations over $100 were out of state donors. Were some of these the internet donations from Qgive?

It is worrisome that RTAB member Joel Ferguson, self employed real estate, donated $1,250 on September 29, 2016. Will this be a conflict of interest.

There is a donation of $750 on 9/29/16 from Team One (PAC). The address is 520 Hayden, PO Box 1260, Saginaw, Mi.

This is the address for the main office of Team One Credit Union. There is no Pac using that name in the State of Michigan Campaign Finance Site. However Saginaw county does not have a searchable campaign finance site.


Team One did do a water drive for Flint. Team One Credit Union ran me through the gauntlet trying to get information. No one knows about a PAC. They allege they will call me back.

If you ever try to get information from Saginaw County, you will really appreciate the efficiency of the Genesee County Clerk's office. Finally got through their phone maze to a person who could not understand about a PAC on the county level. Team One does not have a PAC there either.

Remember when the investigation into donations being sent to KarenaboutFlint and Henderson and Cubb losing their jobs because of it. Everyone thought Weaver only had the facebook page and Karen About Flint .an e-mail account. Not so! She also has karenaboutflint.com and it accepts donations.

An intriguing relationship exists between Joel Ferguson and Gregory Eaton. Both are philanthropist. Both are financial sponsors of the Earvin "Magic' Johnson Foundation which distributes food and gifts to low income families. The first year was in Detroit, the second in Detroit and Lansing. The third year includes Flint.

Eaton donated $250 on 12/25/15.He is shown as an Executive, self employed. By the way the state doesn't believe self employed is a business. Also a second donation of $200 showing origin from the karoub Associates PAC was given the same day.

Ferguson and Eaton also may have had a familial tie through Christian Ferguson, now deceased. Eaton was the first black lobbyist in the State of Michigan. He is now a partner n the firm along with Dale Jurcian, He owns Metro Cars luxury sedans and is on the Board of directors of the Accident fund Insurance company of America, and Republic Bank. A member of the NAACP , the Michigan Black caucus, and the MSU President Club.

Eaton and Ferguson (real estate and MSU Trustee) are both mentors. Probably their most successful talent is Earvin "Magic" Johnson. Eaton met Johnson when he was in high school and working for Eaton's business Gregory's Janitorial,

Eaton and Ferguson gave a bachelor party for Johnson at Ferguson's home. Ferguson helped set Johnson up in real estate and gave him a share in his TV station WFSL-TV.

There needs to be a training session for campaign record keepers before an election.
Or at least they should study the manuals.

Weaver shows a $200 dollar donation from a PM Support at 121 W. Elgin in East Lansing. That is the only information given, except for a notation that it is not a corporation.

I could not locate a company in E. Lansing by that name nor could I locate the street. I went to Ingham County and did a property search and that address did not exist on their records. On a hunch I tried Allegan st and found karoub Scheik & Garcia Inc. What that entry means is anyone's guess. Is PM for property management?

The very next entry is a donation from a Lansing farm Property with no other information. If these records aren't fixed, I would not be surprised to see someone from the Attorney General's office brought in to clean this up.

If someone wants to create a PAC, research and pick the PAC type that meets wishes of the group and make sure the record keeper knows the rules.

Ernestine Hayman, Judge Hayman's third wife, started an independent Super PAC entitled"Women for Social Justice. Most of the donations were from women known to be political. The largest donation was from FG&S Investments, a company owned by the Gilcreasts. The status of the company was questioned.

On March 21, of 215, the PAC gave a direct contribution of $400 to Karen Weaver for Mayor. The donation had to be returned from Weaver because:
'An Independent Expenditure Committee (super PAC) is prohibited from using funds to directly support a candidate through direct or in-kind contributions and from contributing to committee types that can support candidates such as political committees, Independent committees, and Political Party committees"

It is interesting that this PAC showed Alan Canaday out of Lansing as the record keeper. This is the same person used by Woodrow Stanley for his committees..
