CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Legal Newsline) - The chairman of the West Virginia Republican Party is calling out state Attorney General Darrell McGraw for radio ads that he says are a "shameful waste of money at taxpayer expense."

"Darrell McGraw is shamefully wasting taxpayer dollars in what is a thinly veiled effort to build his name ID in advance of next year's election," Mike Stuart said Thursday.

"We want the Attorney General to pull the radio ads immediately and for him, personally or through his campaign, to reimburse the taxpayers and the state treasury for his shameless and embarrassing self-promotion.

"No one can possibly argue that the radio advertisements are for the benefit of our citizens or the office of Attorney General."

Stuart said McGraw needs to provide a full accounting to the taxpayers of the tens of thousands of wasted dollars associated with his personal radio campaign including the dollars used to produce and develop the advertisements.
