Denver Post: Citizens United given go-ahead to run ads for “Rocky Mountain Heist”

Citizens United, the conservative group behind the new film “Rocky Mountain Heist,” can run ads promoting the movie, but still risk answering for it in court, the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office said.

Any person or group could file a complaint alleging the advertisements are election-time attack ads, not a means of reporting news, Deputy Secretary of State Suzanne Staiert told Citizens United in an advisory opinion.

Citizens United announced Sunday it intends to spend $170,000 on TV ads and another $40,000 for online promotions of the documentary about how liberals have gained ground in Colorado between now and the Nov. 4 election.
