Mo. broadcasters seek guidance on white separatist's ads

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Missouri Broadcasters Association is seeking legal guidance on whether stations must run campaign ads by a white separatist candidate for Senate.

The group asked state Attorney General Chris Koster on Wednesday for an opinion on whether 69-year-old Glenn Miller is a legitimate candidate.

The rural southwest Missouri man is a write-in candidate for U.S. Senate. He's been buying radio spots to air anti-Semitic views goading white people to "take our country back."

Meanwhile, the company that owns two Kansas City radio stations that have carried Miller's ads says it's donating the revenue to the NAACP and a local Jewish charity. The Entercom stations are KMBZ-AM and WDAF-FM.

The Federal Communications Commission requires broadcasters to give qualified federal candidates access to airtime. Federal law says the stations can't censor or edit the ads.
