Devolites Davis Ads Are Targeted
From today's Metro section:
The Virginia Democratic Party has asked the State Board of Elections and the Federal Election Commission to investigate whether state Sen. Jeannemarie Devolites Davis (R-Fairfax) and her husband, U.S. Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R-Va.), violated election laws by using his political money to pay for her TV and direct-mail ads.
According to Devolites Davis's most recent campaign finance reports, her husband's political committee paid for airtime for her TV ad and for several of her mailers, even though Devolites Davis claimed in the ads to have paid for them.
Democrats said the ads should have stated that they were paid for by a congressional political committee. Devolites Davis said she disclosed her husband's contributions on her finance reports and wasn't trying to hide anything. She said her own campaign paid for the production of her TV ad and the initial purchase of airtime.
