We are waiting for the newswire to pick up this story, but a source tells me that a U.S. District Court has denied the request of the Susan B. Anthony list to place a restraining order on the decision of the Ohio Elections Board that cited the SBA List for running false ads. The ads maintained that Congressman Steve Driehaus had voted for federal funding of abortion when he voted in favor of the health care bill.
I have written about this story previously, and if I were a judge (we can all thank God I am not!), I would have ruled differently. But, it is telling that a court found the ads sufficiently misleading to allow the Ohio Elections Board case to proceed.
