Rep. Mia Love: Opponent Staged 'Character Assassination' With Claims

(Fox News/"Fox & Friends")

The Federal Election Commission has cleared Rep. Mia Love of complaints that she'd accepted more than a million dollars in illegal campaign contributions, and on Tuesday she slammed the organization that had made the claims against her for its connections with Salt Lake Mayor Ben McAdams, the Democratic challenger for her seat.

"Alliance for a Better Utah is a group that pretends that they are a watchdog for Utah but they're actually a pitbull for the liberal left," the Utah Republican told Fox News' "Fox and Friends."

"We discovered that not only are there campaign donations over and over again, the chairman donated $5,000 to McAdams. His wife was appointed to the planning commission...they're completely connected. They coordinated with the national Democratic Party. It is like putting in a false police report that really should, they should be held accountable for."

In September, the watchdog group accused Love, in a formal complaint to the FEC, of  aising money during the primary challenge period and another $372,000 after the primary election, even though she was unopposed.

Love had said she would redesignate the $372,000 and pay back around $10,000, but the alliance said the offer was "completely inadequate."

The FEC said it required no corective action from Love's campaign, which she said Tuesday is "absolutely devastating" to McAdams.

"They were making on this," she said. "They don't have any policies. They don't have any solutions for anything. This is character assassination, and they found that he actually not just lied, but he coordinated this lie."
