Attorney General Rejects Democrats' Complaint

02/29/12 5:50PM By Ross Sneyd

The attorney general's office has rejected a complaint against an advocacy group that advertised about education funding.

Democrats complained that the Campaign for Vermont should file as a political committee, because it spent more than $500 in an ad critical of Governor Peter Shumlin.

But the attorney general's office says the group is required to file as a political committee only if it were advocating for or against a particular candidate.

The Attorney General says the ad in question was a message on an issue, not a political commercial.
