Dave Spence sues Jay Nixon over campaign ads

Friday, October 12, 2012 9:45 pm GMT

Republican challenger Dave Spence has filed a defamation lawsuit against Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon over a campaign ad.
The lawsuit filed Friday in Cole County claims Nixon maliciously or recklessly broadcast false statements about Spence's role with a bank. The suit seeks unspecified monetary damages.
Nixon's campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Nixon has been running ads that describe Spence as a banker and claim Spence used part of a 40 million federal bank bailout to buy a vacation home.
Spence once served on the board of Reliance Bancshares which received bailout money and he did receive a home loan from the bank. But Spence says there was no connection to the federal money he received no special treatment and he is not a banker.
