Berfield v. Justice



The Democratic Charlie Justice state senate 16 campaign is threatning legal action against TV stations that don't yank a new "false and misleading" spot by Republican Kim Berfield. That rarely does much besides get media coverage. This is from the Justice campaign:

"In another act of desperation amidst widespread scandal within her own Republican Party, Kim Berfield launched a new TV ad campaign that has gone from hypocritical to legally slanderous.
A new TV spot by Berfield starts off by stating that, “Charlie Justice is lying about Kim Berfield’s record on insurance” and “Charlie Justice sided with big insurance companies…”

“I am calling on Kim Berfield to prove her wild accusations made in her TV commercials and her literature. She either proves them or issues a retraction for each accusation she has made,” declared Representative Charlie Justice. "
