Farm Team Asks Moran to Alter Ad

Rosalind Helderman

Brian Moran's campaign has been slapped on the wrist by the organizers of the recent Farm Team debate in Williamsburg, for using video from the event in a You Tube campaign spot in violation of the debate's rules.

Campaigns had agreed they would not use video or audio from the event and Susan Platt, a Farm Team founder, emailed Moran today to complain. Jesse Ferguson, a Moran spokesman, said this evening that the video used only a short clip from the event and it will be removed.

"It's not fair for one campaign to break the rules when the other two have abided by them," Platt said in an interview.

The campaign had been circulating a video featuring various comments suggesting a recent Post story on Terry's McAuliffe's record as a businessman has undermined comments he has made at various debates and forums claiming his experience will help him create jobs in Virginia. One clip came from the Williamsburg event.
