Multimillionaire Dunmire pours $81,000 into anti-transportation initiative

Eye on Money: Developments

Michael Dunmire of Woodinville, Tim Eyman’s sugar daddy and multimillion dollar backer, last month poured nearly $81,000 into Eyman’s anti-transportation measure (Initiative 917). Dunmire is the only one who is making sizable contributions – the next largest donations were for only $250.

And Eyman’s most recent fundraising reports indicate his pool of small donors is continuing to shrink. Initiative 917 won’t make the ballot without Michael Dunmire’s money.
