Judge Rules Against Attack Ads on Beshear

Oct 18, 2011

Frankfort - Franklin Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate on Monday issued a restraining order to stop a group from airing TV commercials against Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear. Wingate ruled the Restoring America group was not disclosing its donors -- a violation of Kentucky campaign law.

Restoring America has been airing TV spots critical of Beshear and supporting his GOP challenger, state Sen. David Williams, according to Louisville TV station WHAS.
