Romney Ad Accuses Obama Campaign of Using Woman’s Death for ‘Political Gain’

Saturday, August 11, 2012


Mitt Romney’s campaign took to the airwaves Friday to condemn an ad that ties the Republican presidential candidate to a woman’s death, releasing a TV ad of their own accusing President Obama’s campaign of trying to “use the tragedy of a woman’s death for political gain.”

The White House, though, continued to deflect questions Friday, as Press Secretary Jay Carney repeatedly said the president does not control “third-party” ads and made no move to condemn the ad from the most prominent pro-Obama super PAC.

The Obama administration’s response effectively has not changed since Tuesday, despite bipartisan claims that the ad is misleading and accusations that the president’s campaign aides lied about their familiarity with the subject.

The Romney campaign signaled it had no intention of letting these concerns fall by the wayside going into the weekend, however.
