Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox wants his opponents for governor to release their personal financial information.
Thursday renewed a challenge he first made in March to every other 2010 candidate for governor to immediately disclose their personal financial data and that of their spouse for the last four years, including tax returns, side jobs and a complete list of holdings and investments.
Cox claims several of his opponents refuse to open their books to voters.
Though no state law currently mandates disclosure, Cox released his family’s personal tax returns and other financial and investment data. Cox’s filings for the last four years are now available online at www.Michigan.gov/TrackYourTaxes.
Running against Cox in the Aug. 3 Republican primary for governor are Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard, Ann Arbor businessman Rick Snyder, U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra and state Sen. Tom George.
Democrats seeking their party's nomination are Michigan Speaker of the House Andy Dillon and Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero.
