'Cease-and-desist' letter by Galloway campaign prompts edit to GOP attack ad

JEFFERSON CITY — State Auditor Nicole Galloway’s campaign for governor fired off cease-and-desist letters to television station managers across Missouri this week, saying an ad produced by a GOP-allied political action committee falsely accused her of committing a crime.

Legal pressure by the Galloway campaign had, as of Friday, resulted in nine stations removing the original Uniting Missouri PAC ad from the air, said Kevin Donohoe, spokesman for the Galloway campaign. A spokesman for Uniting Missouri said the group voluntarily replaced the ad with an edited version.

Uniting Missouri supports Gov. Mike Parson, Galloway’s Republican opponent on Nov. 3.

The skirmish highlights the rough-and-tumble nature of election advertising, where opposing campaigns and groups portray other candidates in the worst light possible. In some cases, TV station managers get caught in the middle, acting as referee between lawyers for both sides.
