"Throughout this election, the Adams campaign has used distortion and mistruths to attempt to win an election," Mica campaign consultant John Dowless said in a statement. "In this last desperate attack it appears they may have crossed the ethical line, disregarding a long-standing House Ethics Rule to prevent political use of official C-Span broadcasts." The letter also notes that the House Rules Committee has been notified. "John Mica's desperation knows no bounds. He will do anything he can to cover up the fact that he is President Obama's best cheerleader," said Adams spokeswoman Lisa Boothe.
