Attorney general, Patrick Morrisey, is at odds with Secretary of State, Mac Warner about the use of anonymous campaign mailers.
Warner is enforcing the state law that forbids anonymous campaign mailers, but Morrisey has called the law unconstitutional.
The Charleston Gazette reports that the state law aims to minimize “political attack ads”.
Morrisey, who is running for senate, concluded that the law violates the first amendment, right to free speech.
The campaign transparency law says that a person may not publish, issue, or circulate any anonymous letter, radio, or television ad supporting the election or defeat of any particular candidate.
