State Republican Files Complaint Over McCain Ad
Republican Party of Virginia Chairman John H. Hager filed a complaint today with the Federal Elections Commission accusing the Democratic National Committee of coordinating with its two presidential candidates on an ad campaign -- a violation of the law.
The 30-second ad shows presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain in a debate saying Americans are better off economically but statistics contradict him.
"Not only are the Democrats blatantly distorting comments made by John McCain, but they are clearly breaking the law in order to do so," Hager said. "The DNC should immediately pull this ad.If they refuse to do so, then Senators Clinton and Obama and their supporters, including Governor Kaine, should call on the DNC to stop running the ad."
The ad, which is running on cable stations nationwide, exceeds the $5,000 contribution limit to each of its presidential candidates and violates the Federal Election Campaign Act, according to Hager.
