State Republicans File Another Ad Complaint
The Republican Party of Virginia announced today that it will file a second complaint with the Federal Elections Commission over what it calls the Democratic National Committee's continued coordination with its presidential candidates to launch attacks against presumptive GOP nominee John McCain.
"A disturbing trend has developed among the DNC and its presidential candidates," said John H. Hager, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia. "First, the DNC shows complete disregard for federal election laws by coordinating strategy with the presidential campaigns, and then the DNC puts out intentionally misleading negative ads.
Hager said Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have not responded to the allegations that they worked with the DNC on the McCain ad and he called on them and Obama campaign co-chair Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine to demand the ads be pulled.
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.
