Progressive Political Organizing group Progress Michigan in a press release, has requested Governor Rick Snyder (R) to account for "Pure Michigan" logo and branding owned by Michigan's Economic Development Commission, used by Right to Work supporters in New York based "Wall Street Journal". 

Progress Michigan request the Governor’s Office to release copies of all electronic and other correspondence between employees at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, related to promotion of the “right-to-work” law and the full-page color “Pure Michigan” ad appearing in the Wall Street Journal on January 6, 2013.
“It’s important that Gov. Snyder take this opportunity to honor his promise to instill a culture of transparency in Lansing,” said Jessica Tramontana, Communications Director of Progress Michigan. “Simply issuing a hollow denial is a disservice to Michigan taxpayers - it’s time for Gov. Snyder to come clean.”
To date, the MEDC has not diverged who or what entity placed the advertisement buy in conservative lending business publication.
“The silence of the MEDC on this speaks volumes,” continued Tramontana. “Gov. Snyder can put this whole debate to rest by admitting responsibility or releasing proof that this didn’t come from his office.”
As noted in Independent Underground initial story about the advertisement uproar, former Governor Jennifer Granholm in 2008 allocated $45 million dollars to Michigan Economic Development Commission focused on promote tourism in the state a marketing campaign and branding of "Pure Michigan" .
