As the controversy over scanned documents and other personal information continues in Jefferson City, television viewers might get the impression a statewide election is imminent, though it is not.
The ads begin with an on-screen question: “Is Jay Nixon's administration breaking the law?”
The commercials proceed, like some campaign ads, but the campaign for governor was last November.
The ads are paid for by United for Missouri, a non-profit that is not required to identify its sources of revenue. A page on the organization's web site names its president as former state GOP chair Woody Cozad.
