Attack Ad Gone Too Far?: New Pro-Obama Super PAC Ad Suggests Romney Is Responsible for Woman’s Death From Cancer
A pro-Obama Super PAC launched a new political ad that’s stirring up controversy. The ad targets Mitt Romney’s time at Bain Capital and suggests that he was responsible for a woman’s death from cancer.
In the ad, a man recounts how during Romney’s tenure at Bain, the steel plant he worked at was closed -- he lost his job and subsequently lost health care coverage for himself and his family. According to the ad, shortly thereafter, his wife became ill and died.
Peter Johnson, Jr. weighed in on the ad, saying that it goes way too far and centers on a ‘morally bankrupt charge of murder.’ Johnson said, “It is the stuff of totalitarian states.”

While Johnson points out that the ad was not put by the Obama campaign directly, he believes that the president condemn it and ask that it be pulled from the air.
