The state Ethics Commission yesterday announced an investigation into whether a voter guide produced by the secretary of state's office is a taxpayer-financed campaign material supporting the re-election of Charlie Daniels.

The back cover of the "Voting 101 Pocket Guide" distributed to county courthouses statewide bears the words "Arkansas Secretary of State Charlie Daniels" beneath "ELECT," an acronym for "Energetic Leadership Educating Citizens Together," which is included in smaller type.

The guide is billed by Daniels' office as part of a voter education program, and he said more than 100,000 of the booklets have been printed in both English and Spanish, and distributed as an election tool to attract young voters.

Daniels has said the publication was never intended for campaign purposes.
