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.
