Current County Commissioner Mike Bosnic is representing County Commissioner Bob Gosselin's son in law, Andy Porter in a case being heard by Michigan Attorney General's Bill Schuette's office. Andy Porter has refused to disclose the funds and the contributors for years while Mike Bosnic and others lie about transparency. People want Bill Schuette's office to prosecute those involved to the fullest capacity.

The Secretary of State agreed that the complaint had merit, (Nov 2009) conducted an investigation (2009-2010 or 13 months), attempted to resolve the matter informally (2011) as mandated by MCL 169.215, and when informal resolution was not achieved --- the case to an administrative hearing (Jun 2011) – where an administrative law judge ordered Taxpayers for Accountability to disclose their financial activity and pay late filing fees and fines of almost $8,000.00 (By Aug 30th 2011). State law grants Taxpayers the right to appeal the administrative law judge’s ruling and it exercised that right with an appeal to the Ingham County Circuit Court (May 2012). The Secretary of State prevailed with the help of the AG Office. TfA then filed a motion asking the Circuit Court Judge to reconsider her ruling. The judge denied Taxpayers’ motion for reconsideration (July 2012). TfA may now seek appellate review and continue to be unaccountable for their actions.
