The lying liars and the lies they tell.
A SuperPAC run by former Obama spokesman Bill Burton accused Mitt Romney of killing a woman because she lost insurance when her husband’s job was terminated.
CNN has blown this ad apart, finding that the woman continued to have health insurance through her own employer after her husband was terminated.
Bain Capital acquires a struggling steel mill in Missouri. Mitt Romney leaves active management of Bain in 1999. In 2001 the Obama bundler that was running Bain closes the steel mill, laying off Joe Soptic. His wife still has insurance through her own employment. In 2002 Mitt Romney formally leaves Bain management. In 2003 Mrs. Soptic leaves her job due to an injury. In 2006 Mrs. Soptic is diagnosed with cancer and dies three weeks later.
In August 2012 the Obama campaign creates an ad blaming Mitt Romney for Mrs. Soptic’s death.
This may go down in history as the sleaziest political ad ever.
