Edmond Pastor Files Lawsuit Over Political Ads (Jun 22, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A tea party-aligned Edmond pastor seeking to oust a two-term state senator in Edmond has filed a defamation lawsuit against his opponent and a political action committee that has funded ads critical of his business dealings.

Paul Blair filed the lawsuit Thursday in Oklahoma County District Court against Sen. Clark Jolley and the Coalition for Oklahoma's Future, a PAC funded by contributions from some of the state's largest corporations.

Blair claims in the suit that radio and television ads that claim Blair's businesses violated state tax laws are "presented with reckless disregard for the truth."

Jolley called Blair's decision to sue "regrettable," while an attorney with the coalition, Robert McCampbell, said Friday the ads are factual and that Blair's suit appears to be "mainly for political spin."
