What Rules? Supreme Court Justice Nominee Campaigns in Uniform, Breaks a Big DoD No-No

 

 

 

So, off to the left is a Google ad that has popped up on the the site for most of today. At least for me. It's one of the Republican nominees for state supreme court, James Robert Redford. Here he is, in a Google ad. In case you hadn't gathered, he's a military veteran, because he's wearing his uniform. The trouble?

4.3.2. Members included in subparagraph 4.3.1. may NOT, in campaign literature (including Web sites, videos, television, and conventional print advertisements):

4.3.2.1. Use or allow the use of photographs, drawings, and other similar media formats of themselves in uniform as the primary graphic representation in any campaign media,such as a billboard, brochure, flyer, Web site, or television commercial. For the purposes of this policy, “photographs” include video images, drawings, and all other similar formats of representational media.

Who does 4.3.1 say?

4.3.1. Members not on active duty who are nominees or candidates for the offices described in subparagraph 4.2.1. may, in their campaign literature (including Web sites, videos, television, and conventional print advertisements):

That means veterans (or anyone) cannot appear in campaign ads wearing uniforms, except that is what Republican nominee for state supreme court James Robert Redford has done.Their Supreme Court candidate has violated DoD rules on use of the military uniform in political advertisements.
