When Republican Tudor Dixon of Norton Shores unsuccessfully ran for governor in 2022, she was endorsed by and fully embraced former president Donald Trump. Among her policy positions were abortion bans, protesting the Covid-19 vaccine as well as other vaccine mandates for children, plans to found Education Savings Accounts which could be used by parents at any public or private school, as well as proposing legislation to ban teachers from talking about sexual orientation or gender identity. After getting trounced big time by Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Dixon returned to being a conservative commentator. However, no politician ever goes away for long. In late May, word bubbled out that she is being required by the state to provide more info on $502,518 from her former campaign funds to a “tax exempt charitable organization,” which is really Education Action Group, a tax exempt social welfare nonprofit run by one of her former staffers – but isn’t covered by a section of federal law for traditional charities because it is a 501(c)4 organization. Because of that action, “Please be advised that the Tudor Dixon for Government Inc. Committee is no longer dissolved,” a letter from the Secretary of State’s Office stated. One Republican politician was surprised she was donating her money, because he had heard that she was “thinking about coming back in two years, and she didn’t raise that much to begin with.” According to state filings, 20 days after the 2022 election, Dixon’s campaign account reported having $741,212 left.
