INDIANAPOLIS -- Republican pundit Mary Matalin is lobbying Indiana lawmakers to oppose a bill banning filming at Indiana farms and factories.

The longtime Republican operative says that Indiana's "ag-gag" bill would punish whistleblowers reporting animal cruelty.

Groups representing Indiana farmers and manufacturers have been pushing a bill that would ban covert filming of their operations. They say they have been unfairly targeted by overzealous activists.

Matalin recorded the spot for People for the Ethical Treatment opposing the measure. PETA released the spot Wednesday.

Matalin is the latest in a string of celebrities PETA has called on to lobby against the measure. "No Doubt" bassist Tony Kanal and former "The Price is Right" host Bob Barker wrote letters to Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma opposing the bill.
