Romney Says Obama Exploits Woman's Death

Incumbent's camp distances itself from the skeevy ads

|

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.
