Tell the GMA to stop blocking GE labeling in Washington State
BREAKING: Companies blocking consumer "Right to Know" are forced to reveal how much they contributed.
Washington state Attorney General, Bob Ferguson, succeeded in forcing the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) to disclose which companies contributed to the "Defense of Brands Strategic Account" fund which was dedicated to fund "No on 522". Using his subpoena power, something that wasn't available to the mom and activists who filed the original complaint against the GMA—Ferguson uncovered strong evidence that the GMA executed an intentional scheme to sidestep Washington state election law that requires groups raising money for a specific political campaign to reveal the donors.
