Kentucky Reform Moves Ahead

A siginificant campaign finance reform bill is moving ahead in Kentucky (SB 8).    Among a large number of changes and additions, the bill includes a provision regarding “frivolous complaints”:

The registry is authorized to impose a civil penalty for the filing of a frivolous complaint, and the filing of a frivolous complaint shall be a violation of this chapter. For purposes of this subsection, “frivolous complaint” means a complaint which is groundless and brought in bad faith, or is groundless and brought for the purpose of harassment.
