Republican Party chairman files ethics complaint about something against Nate Steel


Usually when someone files an ethics complaint against a political opponent, they release the complaint and clearly explain in a press release the bad stuff they're complaining about. Republican Party Chairman Doyle Webb takes a different approach with this press release on his complaint against Rep. Nate Steel, the Democratic nominee for attorney general: 

Republican Party of Arkansas Chairman Doyle Webb today filed a complaint with the Arkansas Ethics Commission against Democrat Candidate for Attorney General Nate Steel for violating Arkansas Criminal laws and Ethics Rules for his own personal gain. In Mr. Steel’s capacity as Nashville City’s Attorney he advised, directed, encouraged and participated in this clear violation by the use for campaign purposes personal property provided with public funds as prohibited by ACA 7-1-103(a)(3)(A) and AR Ethics Rule Section 245(e).

"Democrat Nate Steel seeks to be Attorney General, the chief law enforcement officer in the state of Arkansas, while advising public servants to break the law for his own personal gain,” said Chairman Webb. “Such actions should give pause to the average voter on whether they wish to support Mr. Steel and his motives for statewide elected office.” 

Okay then! Either the RPA needs a better p.r. department or this is thin gruel. I'm reading between the lines here, but seems like maybe this is a reference to police uniforms and a police car in this Nate Steel ad below. I've got a line in to Webb to clarify.
