The Alaska Public Offices Commission has refused to consider a complaint over campaign ads against the group “Vote No on 2” on an expedited basis.
The commission decided instead to handle the matter on a regular schedule after an attorney for the group said the ads had been fixed to comply with state law.
The group behind Ballot Measure 2, the Alaska Sea Party, filed a complaint alleging that “Vote No on 2” TV ads didn’t properly include the names of its top three contributors in the audio narration.
The group wanted the commission to address the issue immediately but Tom Amodio, an attorney for “Vote No on 2,” says the ads were pulled when the group realized there was a problem and new ads will audibly name top donors.
