    Didn't the McCain-Feingold Incumbent Protection Act stifle the NRA from airing ads after a certain date?

    Obama Campaign Threatens Legal Action Over NRA Ads

    Thursday, September 25, 2008

    Fairfax, VA-Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign has sent threatening letters to news agencies in Pennsylvania and Ohio to stop airing ads exposing his anti-gun record sponsored by the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF).

    The kicker? NRA-PVF's Ohio’s ads have not yet begun running.

    “Barack Obama and his campaign are terrified of the truth,” declared Chris W. Cox, Chairman of NRA-PVF. “Sen. Obama's statements and support for restricting access to firearms, raising taxes on guns and ammunition and voting against the use of firearms for self-defense in the home are a matter of public record. NRA-PVF will make sure that everyone knows of Obama's abysmal record on guns and hunting.”

    The Obama campaign sent cease and desist letters to news outlets in Pennsylvania and Ohio, denouncing the ads and demanding their removal from the airwaves. All stations where NRA-PVF has purchased or plans to purchase ads have been provided with documented evidence of Sen. Obama's anti-gun record.

    I would not object if the major thrust of the NRA political ad budget went to the swing states.

    Wisconsin could sure use them.

    apparently they are spending money in swing states and have started with Ohio and Florida. Stations are being threatened by the obama camp claiming the content of the ads is not true thus violating laws.

    ps - I bet McCain is wishing his campaign reform act was reformed a bit.
