'Hillary' movie creators seek ad OK
by UPI

WASHINGTON - A conservative group is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to approve ads for its documentary "Hillary: The Movie" despite Federal Election Commission rules.

The movie, critical of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., opened Jan. 16 in Washington and is being shown in selected cities.

But, the group behind the film, Citizens United, cannot use its three TV commercials unless it agrees to FEC rules. Without ads, it's unlikely many will see the film, The Christian Science Monitor said.

Under campaign-finance regulations, ads for the film must include a political disclaimer and the film's financial backers must be disclosed to the FEC and the public.

The group refused, saying there is nothing political about the ads. A suit in federal court failed and the case was appealed on to the Supreme Court, where the justices are to decide this month whether to hear the case.
