With Tax Day upon us next Monday, MDP will be holding Republicans running for governor accountable, shedding light on the aspects of their campaign, background, or policies Michiganders deserve more transparency on.
MDP is renewing its Sunshine Week call for snake oil salesman Garrett Soldano and his 11 gubernatorial opponents to disclose their tax returns and personal financial information. Soldano called for other Michigan elected officials and candidates to release this information, but has so far refused to follow his own calls for transparency.
Governor Whitmer has voluntarily released tax returns and personal financial information since she was a candidate in 2018. Michigan working families deserve answers on whose interests the wrong-for-Michigan candidates are angling to protect.
MDP spokesperson Rodericka Applewhaite issued the following statement:
“Snake oil salesman Garrett Soldano owes Michiganders answers, namely for exactly how lucrative it’s been for him to be a professional anti-vaxxer hawking multi-level-marketing products as Covid cures and why he has failed to follow his own call to release personal financial information. It’s the least Soldano can do to give Michiganders hope that he’ll honor his own pledge to take these disclosures seriously until every other Republican he’s up against in this crowded and messy gubernatorial primary.”
As a reminder, The rabid election conspiracy theorist and anti-vaxxer also owes Michiganders answers on how much he’s profited on Juice Plus+, a product he claimed would “literally” turn consumers’ bodies “into an environment of greatness and you’ll dominate any virus.”
