Billionaire busts out checkbook
Kalamazoo billionaire Jon Stryker is among the top 10 givers this election cycle to so-called 527 committees, tax-exempt groups allowed to raise as much money as they want for general political activities, such as get-out-the-vote efforts, the Washington-based Center for Responsive Politics says.
Stryker, ninth on the list, has given at least $250,000, the center says.
The center didn't release data on whom he gave to, but in the last election cycle, when he gave more than $1 million, some of the recipients were Grassroots Democrats and the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund.
Stryker is a shady character. Chet Zarko did an excellent job researching this guy's campaign activities. Bill Nowling has reported on him in the past as well.
