Montgomery,AL - Alabama Supreme Court candidate Deborah
Bell Paseur has started an ad to counter one by a Virginia group.
The Center for Individual Freedom, based in Alexandria, Va., has
been running a TV ad complimenting Paseur's Republican opponent,
Paseur's new TV ad says the center is funded by "the likes of
the oil and gas industry" and that the money for the center's ad
campaign doesn't come from Alabama.
Campaign finance reporting laws don't cover ads like the
center's because the ad doesn't encourage anyone to vote for Shaw
on Nov. 4. Paseur's campaign manager, Marion Steinfels, says it's a
way for businesses to hide their involvement.
Calls to the center for comment have not been returned. The
