LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Two University of Louisville doctors say
they didn't know videotaped comments they made in support of U.S.
Sen. Mitch McConnell would be used in a televised campaign add
touting McConnell's re-election.
A third physician says he wouldn't have allowed himself to be
taped if he knew the testimonial would appear on McConnell's
campaign Web site.
Drs. Larry Cook and Donald Miller said they believed their
comments would only appear on the web site, and not the TV ads. Dr.
Laman Gray said he wasn't sure how the video was going to be used
and wouldn't have agreed to participate if he knew how the video
was going to be used.
The university generally prohibits employees from giving their
affiliation while making political endorsements.
A spokesman for McConnell declined to comment on the issue.
