MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont attorney general’s office has rejected a Republican Party complaint that a political committee affiliated with Planned Parenthood illegally coordinated activities with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Sue Minter’s campaign.

Democratic Attorney General William Sorrell says an investigation did not find sufficient evidence that the Planned Parenthood PAC and Minter campaign had worked in concert.

The Vermont Republican Party had complained that the PAC’s candidate questionnaire and its endorsement of Minter indicated the PAC and campaign were working together.

Republicans pointed to Minter’s alleged use of the same media vendor and substantially similar video footage as the PAC.

The attorney general found that the media vendors were related but separately functioning entities. It also found the video images in question were publicly available.
