The American Leadership Project, a group I’ve written about in the past, is back with some new ads in Indiana.
Bob Bauer, Obama Campaign Chief Counsel said, “We’ve seen ALP before…and they are completely breaking the law. They’ve modeled themselves after the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth. It has been organized by her [Hillary Clinton] supporters and supported by her campaign and the consequences are going to be severe. The standards of the FCC are being completely violated. Sometimes people in desperate situations do desperate things.”
Bauer stopped short of saying that he would file a complaint against the ALP but promised that the people involved in organizing and running the ad runs a high risk of being prosecuted by federal authorities.
