Muckraker extraordinaire and Detroit News columnist Charlie LeDuff got the goods on Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel and a recent five-day Caribbean jaunt to the Turks and Caicos, the tab for which was reportedly picked up by the Traverse City law firm of Kelly Neumann, a substantial contributor to Nessel’s last run for state office. Think over $7,000. According to LeDuff, the AG and her spouse Alanna Maguire were part of a group that stayed at the $8,600-a-night penthouse digs at the Ritz Carlton Hotel and had yet to respond to his question of whether the costs were reimbursed by Nessel to the host. Legal experts say that no law was broken but the trip certainly calls into question the ethics of the situation. So much for transparency in this administration.
