From the AJC:
Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor’s campaign filed suit Monday in Fulton County Superior Court against his Democratic gubernatorial opponent, Secretary of State Cathy Cox, saying she is violating the state’s Open Records Act.
Taylor’s campaign filed an Open Records request in April asking for documents dealing with her use of Investor Trust Fund money to run TV and radio commercials warning against securities fraud.
Cox’s critics have accused her of spending $4 million in trust fund money to bolster her gubernatorial bid. Cox said the ads were designated to warn Georgians about securities fraud. The ads were funded with money from a national lawsuit against investment firms that states received for investor education. The secretary of state’s office turned over thousands of documents, but Taylor’s campaign said Monday that it failed to turn over copies of the TV and radio ads.
Peter Jackson, spokesman for the Cox campaign, said copies of those ads are awaiting the Taylor campaign at the secretary of state’s office
