Don't Be Such A Schmidt Monday, November 21, 2005

The right 'ornery Representative Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio), who barely won the seat in a brutal special election earlier in the year is currently breaking the law. How you might ask. Mark Nickolas at Bluegrass Report kindly pointed out some problems she has on her re-election site. The problem is it violates campaign rules explained in detail in manuals put forth by the U.S. House of Representatives. Keep in mind this is why political leaders are supposed to maintain a separate headquarters from their actual work offices.

Here's the quote he pulled:

In reproducing such materials, the campaign must remove all official indicia, such as the official letterhead from a press release that the congressional office had issued, and any references to the address or telephone number of the congressional office. The name of any congressional staff contact that appeared in the material as issued originally must also be deleted. Subject to the same requirements, such materials may also be posted on the Member’s campaign Web site.

Now takes a look at her site. She violates a number of rules including carrying the official seal and linking back to her congressional site. Keep in mind this is the woman who initially suggested the Murtha marine was a coward.
