Vermont AG requested to investigate Republican Governors Association
The Republican Governors Association advertisement supporting Brian Dubie
MONTPELIER, Vermont: A television advertisement launched by the Republican Governors Association in support of Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Dubie has drawn the ire of Vermont Democrats who argue that it is a violation of campaign finance laws. A two-page complaint has been filed with State Attorney General Bill Sorrell contending that the commercial represents a clear violation of state campaign finances rules that "prohibit candidates from “facilitating, soliciting or approving” expenditures from political-action committees or other independent groups." Sorrell's office has immediately launched an investigation into the matter to determine whether the complaint has merit. Should Dubie be found guilty of violating state campaign measures, fines of up to $10,000 per violation could be filed against him.
