PAC settles with Baria over 2011 direct mail campaign material

The director and treasurer of a political action committee are apologizing to state Rep. David Baria today in full-page advertisement running in two Coast newspapers.

The apology is from Steve Simmons, executive director of the Advance Mississippi PAC, and Randy Stephens, the group’s treasurer.

The ad says: “On behalf of themselves individually and the PAC offer their sincere apology to Rep. David Baria, D-Bay St. Louis, for their publication of false and defamatory ads during the 2011 legislative campaign.”
