Issue advertising: A new push for disclosure

  After outside spending in Michigan judicial races in 2012, Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson is proposing new administrative rules that would require disclosure of who pays for controversial issue ads.
  Issue ads are gaining national scrutiny because of their increasing use and because those who buy them are exempt from disclosing their identities.
  In Michigan, so-called dark money spending even reached down to the local level in Pontiac's mayoral race Nov. 5.
