GOP says Democrats abuse nonprofit mailing permit
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A top Kentucky Republican is asking the U.S. Postal Service to take away the state Democratic Party’s nonprofit mailing permit, at a time when political mailings are stuffing mail boxes ahead of next month’s election.
State GOP Chairman Steve Robertson filed a complaint alleging the Democratic Party abused its nonprofit permit.
Robertson points to Democratic state Senate candidate Will Cox’s campaign in his allegations.
Robertson says mass mailings indicating the material was paid for by Cox’s campaign included the Democratic Party’s nonprofit mailing permit information and return address. Robertson says candidate campaigns are ineligible for mailing at the lower nonprofit rate.
Cox’s campaign consultant declined comment Monday.
State Democratic Party Chairman Dan Logsdon says he’ll review the allegations but says he doesn’t think there was any abuse of the nonprofit permit.
