JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The chairman of the Republican Party of Arkansas filed a complaint with the Arkansas Ethics Commission on Tuesday against an Attorney General candidate.

In the citizen complaint form, RPA chairman Doyle Webb said democratic candidate Nate Steel, “intentionally violated Arkansas Criminal laws and Ethics Rules for his own personal gain” in one of his recent campaign ads.

Webb said that in the advertisement Steel used a Nashville City, AR police car with lights flashing, and officers in uniform with complete badges and weapons to enhance the purpose of his candidacy for attorney general.

Webb asked the Arkansas Ethics Commission to punish Steel for “violation by the use for campaign purposes personal property provided with public funds as prohibited by ACA 7-1-103(a)(3)(A) and AR Ethics Rule Section 245(e).”
