Moore film ads violate election law, says group

Moore film ads violate election law, says group: "WASHINGTON -- A conservative group asked federal election officials on Thursday to investigate whether television ads for director Michael Moore's anti-Bush documentary ''Fahrenheit 9/11'' violate campaign finance law regulating when commercials may feature a presidential candidate.
The Federal Election Commission might take months to issue a ruling on the complaint, making it unlikely the commission would act in time to affect the film's ad campaign. The two-hour documentary, which depicts President Bush as lazy and oblivious to warnings in summer 2001 that al-Qaida was poised to strike, opens nationwide today."
