It was sent by the "616 PAC," which is nothing more than a front for Lansing insiders like Rep. Haveman.
According to campaign finance records, the 616 PAC donated $1500 to Haveman House Fund on August 4, for who knows what reason.
Yet, on August 7, Haveman House Fund donated the $1500 to 616 PAC...(Seems to be some sort of money game going on there.)
In addition to Joe Haveman's help, Arlan Meekhof's Moving Michigan Forward Fund, which also paid for Meekhof's "orange flyer" at the Ottawa County Convention, also helped fund the mailer against Haveman, donating $4,000.
616 PAC paid two vendors for the mailer shortly after receiving money from Haveman and Meekhof.
At the time, the Holland Sentinel said:
"Politics in the 90th District have gotten decidedly grimier than usual in the days leading up to Tuesday’s Republican primary.
From a mysterious robo-call to a mailer calling out Geoff Haveman’s “campaign coordinator” for criminal charges, outside groups have been making their mark on the state House race."
