Peters' Opponent Plans Lawsuit Over Campaign Ad

election Peters' Opponent Plans Lawsuit Over Campaign AdRepublican congressional challenger Rocky Raczkowski (roch-KOF’-skee) says he is suing incumbent Democratic U.S. Rep. Gary Peters over a campaign ad.

The ad airing recently in the Detroit area relates to a federal lawsuit against Raczkowski.

The suit says he and his company destroyed ticket stubs to cover up the actual number of people who attended concerts in South Dakota in 2008.

The ad features people saying they don’t trust Raczkowski because of the lawsuit.

Raczkowski said in a statement announcing the defamation lawsuit Monday that Peters showed “reckless disregard for the truth.”

Peters spokesman Dan Farough says the campaign stands by the ad.

Peters and Raczkowski are running in the 9th District.

    Losers, like Peters apparently thinks he will be, do desparate things. The ad cites “allegations”. WOW. anyone can say anything as a politician would know whether it is true or not.

    Peters is in trouble not because of his opponent. He is in trouble for voting more power to the feds and more money to it from taxpayers. Think he might work on that, first.
