ATLANTA (AP) -- A former state lawmaker has filed an ethics complaint against Democrat Jason Carter, whose campaign manager has since filed similar complaints against Gov. Nathan Deal.<br />
A July 17 complaint by former state Sen. John Douglas alleges Carter, a state senator from Atlanta, violated state law by sending fundraiser invitations during the legislative session. Carter is challenging Deal, who is up for re-election in November.<br />
Carter campaign manager Matt McGrath says the fundraiser was for the state party and happened after the session was over. McGrath filed two complaints Friday against Deal for attending a fundraiser hosted by the Republican Governors' Association and for sending out invitations to his annual fundraiser during the session.<br />
Deal campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Talaber said the complaints against the governor were "a desperate attempt to deflect."
