The Democratic Governors Association has filed an elections complaint in Ohio alleging Fox News Network illegally helped the Republican governor nominee solicit funds during a television appearance.

In documents filed Thursday, the association says Fox allowed John Kasich to request contributions from viewers during an Aug. 18 broadcast and displayed the address of his campaign website.

The complaint alleges the free publicity is an improper in-kind contribution to Kasich's campaign.

The association wants Democratic Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland re-elected in November. Kasich, a former congressman, Lehman Brothers managing director and Fox commentator, is keeping pace with Strickland in polls and fundraising.

Messages seeking comment were not immediately returned by a Fox spokeswoman and the Kasich campaign.
