Posted on 09/25/2012 4:05:06 PM PDT by Republican Wildcat
A coal executive is threatening to sue Congressman Ben Chandler over a recent campaign ad.
Chandler is facing Republican Andy Barr in the November election. Executive Heath Lovell appeared in a Barr ad recently wearing a hardhat and miner's garb.
In response, Chandler has been running an ad saying Lovell is not actually a coal miner.
Lovell's attorneys sent Chandler a letter today asking that the campaign take down the ad. The letter also included certificates to show Lovell is a certified miner for underground and surface coal operations in the commonwealth.
A spokesperson for Chandler did immediately not return a request for comment.

Democrats LIE....it’s what they are GOOD at!!! Governing, not so much, but LYING.....SUPERB!!!
I hope the dems keep this up. It is hurting them.
What Chandler meant is he's not a real minor.
Good for the executive - it’s about time someone started suing these lying maggots! Someone needs to hold them accountable because their supporters/voters don’t!
Don’t just threaten to sue, actually sue.
He is a retired Minor.
Careful there - calling a lying Democrat a 'lying maggot' may be defamatory to maggots by equating them with lowly Democrats. At least some maggots have morals, self-respect and integrity. How many Democrat pols can you legitimately make that claim about?
How about 'lying cretins' or 'lying filth' or even 'lying pond scum'?
(N.B. My apologies if I have offended any pond scum.)
Is Ben Chandler Happy Chandler’s grandson?
Thanks Republican Wildcat.
Makes my day!
Sad, but true.
That 1-minute response ad is great from the Barr campaign.
That will work!
But no apology to any breed of LIARS - I'm not PC. I say f'n 'em all! ;)
