Democratic Governors Again Take on Fox News

Fox gave an in-kind contribution to an Ohio candidate, the organization alleges

john kasichKeeping up its war with Fox News, the Democratic Governors Association on Thursday filed a complaint with the Ohio Elections Commission accusing the network of making an illegal in-kind contribution to gubernatorial candidate John Kasich (R-Ohio), the Huffington Post reports.

The complaint's basic allegation is that Fox's decision to run a chyron featuring Kasich's website at the same time that the Republican Senate candidate was soliciting donations on Bill O'Reilly's show constitutes an in-kind contribution from the station to the candidate.

A Fox News spokesperson told the Huffington Post the network has not received any such complaint and therefore could not comment.
