Las Vegas Stations Told To Pull Attack Ad

Nevada congressional candidate Danny Tarkanian’s leading opponent, state Sen. Michael Roberson, launched a recent TV-only ad attacking Tarkanian’s involvement with a telemarketing scheme and his role as a registered agent for companies that acted as fronts for fraudulent charities. Tarkanian’s attorney sent a cease-and-desist letter to Las Vegas television stations Tuesday demanding they stop airing the ad, which was paid for by a Roberson campaign committee.
