Political allies of President Barack Obama are lining up against a northeastern Ohio mining company whose employees were featured in a TV ad by Republican Mitt Romney.
Liberal policy group ProgressOhio filed a Federal Election Commission complaint Monday against Murray Energy Corp. It alleges Murray left the required disclaimer off its anti-Obama yard signs. The signs read: “STOP the WAR on COAL — FIRE OBAMA.”
Also Monday, the Ohio Democratic Party asked prosecutors to investigate Murray for potential fundraising violations and employee coercion.
