* Martinez said she returned this
contribution out of fear it would have violated campaign finance laws
for accepting a contribution from a corporation.


** MichiganMessenger.com reported Monday that this
contribution is from a not-for-profit corporation, which also would
have been illegal. Robinson told City Pulse Tuesday that her campaign
is resolving the issue and would return the money if required.
