Republicans file complaint against governor

AP Wire | 09/29/2006 | Republicans file complaint against governor:
"The Michigan Republican Party on Friday said it has filed a federal complaint over Gov. Jennifer Granholm using state resources to create a brochure showing her administration's efforts to create more jobs.

A Granholm spokeswoman dismissed the move as a publicity stunt.

State GOP Chairman Saul Anuzis said the governor hasn't violated any state laws because the brochure and other items listed in the complaint don't promote the Democratic governor's bid for re-election.

But he said the federal Hatch Act bans the governor from using her official office for personal political gain. The complaint, filed last week with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, was probably the first filed against a governor under the Hatch Act, according to GOP attorney Eric Doster."
