Schauer had own non-profit fund as a state lawmaker

Lead in text: 
Democratic challenger never raised as much money as NERD fund and dissolved his non-profit fund in 2010

But Schauer had the same type of nonprofit fund - one that could accept unlimited and undisclosed corporate donations - when he was in the state Legislature.
