Well, that didn’t take long.
A top Obama campaign official is being accused of lying over what she knew about the man at the center of a damning super PAC ad tying his wife’s death to Mitt Romney.
Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter appeared on CNN Wednesday morning to say, among other things, that “I don’t know the facts” about the case of Joe Soptic, a steelworker who appeared in a controversial ad for the pro-Obama super-PAC Priorities USA. In the ad, Soptic, recounts how his wife died of cancer after he lost his health insurance when his plant was shuttered after a takeover by Bain Capital and other companies working with the private equity firm.
Cutter said she didn’t know when Soptic’s wife fell ill, or about his health insurance.
Now go to the 4 min mark at this CNN video……
Team Obama didn’t just get caught lying, it’s pretty clear they coordinated the attack with Priorities USA. This is a violation of election laws, and it’s all on video!!!
Look at the ease at which she lies!
Cutter wasn’t the only Obama campaign official caught up in the controversy.
“This is an ad by an entity that’s not controlled by campaign. I certainly don’t know the specifics of this man’s case,” campaign adviser Robert Gibbs said on MSNBC. Another Obama campaign spokeswoman separately told reporters that the campaign had no knowledge of the family involved.
And then here is Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki’s lie to Wolf Blitzer at CNN!
She denies working with Priorities USA at 1:40 mark, at the 2:17 mark she again states they had nothing to do with the ad. Again at the 2:50 mark. At the 3:04 mark she states that no one in the campaign was involved in making the ad. And she continues to lie throughout the video.
