State Attorney General Bob Ferguson Charges No on I-522 With Hiding Its Donors

SEATTLE— Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson has charged opponents of I-522 with hiding millions of dollars in campaign contributions by not properly disclosing their donors. The out-of-state corporations who oppose labeling of genetically engineered foods not only want to deny our right to know what’s in the food we eat, they also want to hide who’s funding their campaign.

“Attorney General Bob Ferguson asked the court to take immediate action that No on 522 comply with state campaign finance disclosure laws. Clearly, these giant out-of-state corporations believe they are above the law and this is another example of the lengths they are willing to go in order to keep people from knowing who’s behind their misleading and false attacks,” said Yes on 522 campaign manager, Delana Jones. “The No on 522 campaign ads should come down until they comply with the law. And they should return the illegally raised money. We have the right to know who is funding their campaign, just like we have the right to know what’s in our food.”
