District Attorney: Candidates breaking “Disclaimer Law” could be cited and charged


THE UPCOMING ELECTION IN CARTER ARE BREAKING THE LAW THAT COMING FROM DISTRICT ATTORNEY TONY CLARKITS ALL CENTER ON THE DISCLAIMER LAW THAT LAW SAYS ANYONE RUNNING FOR ELECTION MUST PUT ON THEIR SIGNS WHO PAID FOR IT

WE FIND OUT A NUMBER OF CANDIDATES DON'T HAVE THAT DISCLAIMERNEWS CHANNEL 11'S CURTIS MCCLOUD SPOKE WITH THE COUNTY'S TOP PROSECUTER TO GET A BETTER UNDERSTAND OF HOW THIS LAW WORKS DISTRICT ATTORNEY TONY CLARK SAYSIF THAT MESSAGE IS NOT PUT ON CANDIDATES SIGNS THEN THEY COULD FACE A MISDEMEANOR CHARGE

CAMPAIGN SIGNS ARE HARD TO MISS THROUGHOUT CARTER COUNTY NATS<CAR DRIVING BY THERE ON ALMOST EVERY CORNER CAR DRIVING BY EVERY OPEN LOT CAR DRIVING BY AND IN SOME PEOPLE'S FRONT YARDS CAR DRIVING BY BUT IF YOU LOOK CLOSELYSOME OF THOSE SIGNS PUT UP BY PEOPLE RUNNING FOR SHERIFF

MAYOR COUNTY CLERKOR COMMISSIONER IN CARTER COUNTY ARE MISSING AN IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER "IT HAS TO BE AFFIXED ON THE SIGN AND THAT IS FOR LARGE SIGNS, SMALL SIGNS, YARD SIGNS AND LITERATURE THAT IS HANDED OUT, WHAT IS EXCLUDED IS LIKE PINS, BUTTONS THINGS OF THAT NATURE

" DISTRICT ATTORNEY GENERAL TONY CLARK TOLD US THAT THE DISCLAIMER LAW REQUIRES CANDIDATES TO TELL THE PUBLIC WHO PAID FOR THE CAMPAIGN MATERIALTHAT INFORMATION COMING FROM THE COUNTY ELECTION OFFICE AND EXPLAINED IN DETAIL IN THE ELECTION PACKET THAT EACH CANDIDATE PICKED UP FORM THE ELECTIONS OFFICE

"ALL WE DO IS GIVE THE INFORMATION TO THE CANDIDATE AND THEY TAKE IT FROM THERE" OUR CAMERAS SPOTTED SEVERAL SIGNS WITHOUT THE DISCLAIMER LAW PRINTED OR POSTED ON THEMWE WANTED TO KNOW IF CANDIDATES UNDERSTOOD THE LAW AND KNEW WHAT IT WAS

SO WE CALLED ALL OF THEM "HI THIS IS CURTIS MCCLOUD WITH NEWS CHANEL 11" ONE BY ONE, ASKING ABOUT THE DISCLAIMER LAW "DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE DISCLAIMER LAW?" MOST CANDIDATES ANSWERED OUR QUESTIONS

SOME DIDN'T ANSWER OR DIDN'T CALL BACK PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY SAY CANDIDATES SHOULD KNOW THE LAWS AND FOLLOW THEM "I THINK IF SOMEONE IS GOING TO BE RUNNING FOR PUBLIC OFFICE, THEY SHOULD BE OBEYING ALL THE LAWS" CURTIS MCCLOUD/ CARTER COUNTY 5:37:53) "SO FAR THERE HAS ONLY BEEN ONE COMPLAINT ABOUT THE SINGS INTO THE ELECTION COMMISSION OFFICE, STILL THE COUNTY'S TOP PROSECUTER SAYS IF THERE IS A COMPLAINT, HE WILL LOOK INTO" "IT IS THE LAW NOW NOW ENFORCEMENT OF THAT IS LEFT UP TO THOSE WHO ENFORCE THE LAW, WE PROSECUTE OFFENDERS OF THE LAW

" SO WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ENFORCING THE DISCLAIMER LAW? THAT FALLS ON AREA LAW ENFORCEMENTLIKE THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE AND POLICE DEPARTMENT CURTIS MCCLOUD NEWS CHANNEL 11 IN YOUR CORNER

THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY SAYS SO FAR HE HAS NEVER HAD ANYONE IN HIS DISTRICT CHARGED OR CITED FOR BREAKING THIS LAW
