Duncan Hunter’s Illegal Ad?

28Feb07

Republican Duncan Hunter of California became the first Presidential candidate to air a TV ad in the state of New Hampshire on Saturday. Just two days later, a controversy has started to brew. First, here’s the video in question- Congressman Hunter espousing the virtues of a border fence.

According to a New Hampshire news site, “Some experts [say] [Duncan] might be violating campaign finance laws… [with his ad] which asks viewers to visit the political action committee’s Web site. The PAC’s Web site then asks visitors to visit Hunter’s campaign site. Lawyers said the situation could be interpreted as an endorsement and a violation of campaign finance laws.”
