Joe Miller files FEC complaint against Murkowski supporter AST

Joe Miller filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission Wednesday over a political action committee that's supporting Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, whom Miller defeated in the state's GOP primary, in her write-in bid to hang on to her seat in the U.S. Senate:
In his complaint, Miller argues that several of the Native regional corporations that have donated to Alaskans Standing Together (AST) are federal contractors, they're barred from participating in politics.


Alaskans Standing Together has pumped $1 million so far into Murkowski's race. The National Republican Senatorial Committee today and yesterday disclosed it had devoted an additional $311,942 to campaign advertising on Miller's behalf. He got another $54,283 from Sen. Jim DeMint's Senate Conservatives Fund today, for a total of $236,635 from the conservative South Carolina Republican.
A closer look at Murkowski's relationship with AST is here.
