Phil Moffett’s campaign “manager,” David Adams, tweeted this last night:
Yup – openly mocking the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance, which sent a letter to Moffett regarding his illegal campaign activities, which we first told you about:
- Moffett’s Camp Coordinating With Outside Group [April 21]
- Teabaggers Just Love Ignoring & Violating The Law [April 22]
- Phil Moffett Is Still In Collusion With PAC [April 25]
- Teabagger Continues To Cross State-Federal Line [April 25]
Here’s the latest story from the mainstream:
Republican gubernatorial candidate Phil Moffett’s campaign dismissed as “absurd” on Thursday a complaint that it may have coordinated with an out-of-state tea party group that is running at least one radio ad in Kentucky.
Kentucky Registry of Election Finance attorney Emily Dennis warned the Moffett campaign in a letter Thursday to “cease and desist” any discussions it may have had with Western Representation PAC.
“Not only did we do nothing wrong, it’s absurd that state government is burning up precious resources to intimidate citizens exercising our God-given rights to challenge the establishment,” Moffett campaign manager David Adams said. “I’d love to have a real fight over this on the merits or on the basis of our free speech rights. We won’t be scared off by this nonsense.”
Dennis said the registry had received a report alleging the Moffett campaign and the political group may be coordinating efforts. If so, Dennis warned, any money the group spends would be considered an in-kind contribution that could exceed the state’s $1,000 campaign contribution limit.

You catch that? David Adams blatantly and purposefully ignoring campaign finance law.
It’s a shame those guys won’t win because people have gone to prison for less. Anybody remember my pal, Jeff Smith, whose campaign illegally coordinated with an outside entity in a similar manner and lied about it? Skipper Martin? Danny Ross? These folks are being completely open about it. And if they’re asking for a fight? They may want to be more selective with their words. Cause it doesn’t take anything for law enforcement to swoop in and take charge.
