TV stations pull misleading campaign ad

Posted by Tom Wright - email

BILOXI, MS (WLBT) - Television stations across the state are removing one of the campaign ads running for the Southern District supreme court race.

The ad from the Law Enforcement Alliance of America targets Justice Oliver Diaz.  A special judicial ethics committee condemned the ad Wednesday because it contains false accusations about Diaz.

His campaign issued an official challenge Thursday.  That's the legal step necessary before television stations can stop running political advertisements.

WLBT, our Raycom affiliates and other stations around the state will stop broadcasting the ad.

This report was compiled with help from our Gulf Coast affiliate, WLOX.
