Who is Joann Kemp? A donor to Sen. Carl Levin who failed to disclose Employer/Occupation with her $1000 check

Campaign Disclosure Record
Joann Kemp | Sen. Carl Levin
On March 30, 2007, Joann Kemp (Mrs. William R. Kemp) of Harrison Township (MI) gave U.S. Sen. Carl Levin a $1000 check for his re-election campaign. It appears after searching and, to be the only time Mrs.  Kemp has ever contributed to a federal election campaign. In giving Levin the $1000, she failed to provide details about her employer/employment and occupation as required by the Federal Election Commission. Levin's campaign reported that they requested the detail but it does not appear Mrs. Kemp has ever complied. (Original Document Filed with FEC)

Ironically March 30, 2007, is the same day that Michael Malik and Marian Ilitch, proponents of a Bay Mills Indian Community Casino in Port Huron corralled family, friends, business associates, partners, agents and fellow Bay Mills Casino supporters together to help raise almost $100,000 for Levin's re-election campaign. That following summer Levin, who had been previously disinterested in the schemes to build a Bay Mills Casino in Port Huron, announced his active support.

Fast forward....

The morning of November 3, 2010, a warranty deed was recorded with Genesee County (MI) whereby Norel Enterprises Inc. transferred a 28 acre parcel of undeveloped land in Flint Township (Dutcher Rd. @ Lennon Rd.) to Joann Marie Kemp (aka Joanne Marie Kemp). That afternoon a Quitclaim Deed was recorded whereby Joann Kemp immediately turned around and transferred the same property to the Bay Mills Indian Community. It is believed the tribe and it's developers want to establish a casino on the property.

In a further twist of irony, or perhaps not... R. Thomas Vigliotti the Detroit real estate broker who reportedly handled the transactions involving Mrs. Kemp was one of those who also contributed $1000 to Sen. Levin on March 30, 2007.
