  • Six DeVoses maxed out to Lang, including DeVos’ husband, Dick.

  • DeVos’ extremist education agenda dovetails with Lang’s role on the boards of the education achievement authority and eastern michigan university, which helped expand charter schools in Michigan with little oversight.

  • Lang’s loyalty lies with the hyper-partisan DeVoses first, which impedes her ability to be a fair arbiter of elections. She will certainly oppose strong transparency laws and campaign finance reform.
