Nearly $23 million spent on television advertising related to Michigan's 2010 statewide elections isn't disclosed in the state's campaign finance reporting system, according to a report released Monday by a watchdog group.

The nonpartisan Michigan Campaign Finance Network said the money was spent on candidate-focused "issue" advertising and isn't disclosed because of weak laws or how they're interpreted by state election officials. The report says nearly $70 million has been spent on this sort of advertising to support candidates since 2000.
