Democrats' ad was short on facts

Success - Article sent! close

It was bad enough that Harry Reid made comments about Mitt Romney on the Senate floor with no evidence at all. But now a Democratic National Committee PAC ran an ad from an employee who lost his job and insurance from a Bain-owned company. He implied that Romney caused his wife's death from cancer because she lost her insurance coverage. What he neglected to mention was that the wife passed away seven years after Romney left Bain. But the most important item he ignored was his wife had insurance coverage from her employer, not his.

A new low even for this campaign. There are no ethics or shame in politics.
