The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office has filed a civil suit against Rep. Charlie Bass’ (R-NH) 2010 campaign saying that it “deliberately” misled voters with a push poll against Democrat Ann McLane Kuster. A push poll introduces negative information about opponents in the guise of a genuine public opinion survey. Bass could be fined up to $400,000 for the alleged violation, $1,000 per call. The campaign “strongly denies” the allegations and vows to fight them.
