The political attacks keep coming. And they're getting nastier. This time, an ad from a super PAC supporting President Barack Obama, blaming Mitt Romney for a cancer-related death.
"When Mitt Romney and Bain closed the plant, I lost my health care and my family lost their health care. And a short time after that my wife became ill," said Joe Soptic, a former worker at the Kansas City-based steel plant.
The woman sadly passed away in 2006. Four years after the plant closed. Thirteen years after Bain acquired the plant.
OutFront tonight: Michael Waldman, former speechwriter for Bill Clinton, David Frum, former speechwriter for George W. Bush and CNN Contributor John Avlon.
Pro-Obama super PAC links Romney to death of former steelworker's wife
Priorities USA Action, a super PAC supportive of President Barack Obama, released a new ad Tuesday, tying Mitt Romney to the death of a former GST Steel worker's wife after the employee lost his job when the plant closed down.
Romney's former private equity firm, Bain Capital, acquired GST Steel in 1993, but the company went bankrupt in 2001, two years after Romney ceased day-to-day oversight of Bain.
