FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Complaints against campaigns in several Indiana races have come forward this week and today is no exception. In a statement released today by Third District Democratic Party Chair Carmen Darland, the campaign committee to elect Marlin Stutzman is under fire.

Darland filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission against the Stutzman for Congress Committee on Oct. 28. The complaint addresses a series of printed signs in the Kendallville area.

Darland said the political signs are without a disclaimer meant to reveal who paid for the advertising, which is required by federal law.

After initially contacting the Stutzman campaign and the Indiana Republican Party on Oct. 18, Darland said neither group informed him who paid for the signs nor have they removed any signs.

"A responsible candidate and campaign would have resolved this issue immediately, since federal election law has clearly been violated and the signs support his campaign,” Darland said.
