Tea Party Did Not Violate Election Laws

Dec 1, 2011

The Northern Kentucky Tea Party did not violate campaign finance laws by paying for a November 2010 newspaper ad that listed candidates that supported tea party values, the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance board decided Wednesday. The board dismissed a complaint filed by Hebron resident Jonathan Brown that alleged the ad endorsed candidates and therefore required the Northern Kentucky Tea Party to register as a campaign committee where it would have to report its contributions and expenditures.
