    Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?

    Raise the curtain.

    You Didn't See It, Now You Won't

    "we ought to be more transparent than we have to be"

    How dumb.  Just disclose what you have now and move along.  L. Brooks Patterson doesn't hesitate to name those he shakes down and those buying influence in Oakland County, however, Rick Snyder is above that as if his donors are like Barry's college transcripts.

    "I think if you don't release it, it looks like there's something suspicious," Patterson told The News. "We all talk about transparency and we either live it or not."

    "It's easier to hit your supporters for a donation sometimes, than getting them to donate from their personal account," Patterson said of getting corporate donations made to the fund.

    Snyder testified last week in a deposition in Detroit's bankruptcy case that he doesn't know who donates to the fund - an admission that's raised some eyebrows. "It's almost dereliction of duty if he didn't know who the donors were," Robinson said.

    Rich Baird testified he didn't know either.  What a pack of lies.  So, what's a Nerd to do?  Naturally, Rick Snyder put's his crony on the public dole with a $40,000 pay raise.  Frilliant!

    So let me get this straight:

    The guv is closing his little "petty cash" fund, because there are too many questions that he doesn't want to answer about who's kicking into it. And replacing it with another another one which promises to be just a wee bit more open.

    All from the same man who promised to have one of the most transparent administrations.

    The guv couldn't tell Messrs. Secchia, Canale and Nicholson to just simply release the names...why?

    After all, it's his "fund".

    And this Baird character needs to come up with a better cover story than the one he's shoveling to the media.

    "I know who I submit the invoice to, and I know who signs the check. Outside of that, I don't know anything else."

    I never realized that the person the guv tapped on for his knowledge and experience to help run state government was such a dullard when it came to figuring out who to really go to get things done.
