Obama hack Stephanie Cutter hosted Obama campaign conference call with man in disgraced Romney gave my wife cancer ad
I’m not very knowledgeable about Super-Pac laws and such. But isn’t a candidate and his hacks supposed to avoid coordinating with Super-Pacs that support him? Wouldn’t this be considered collusion? The man who appeared in the now disgraced Obama Super-Pac ad basically acussing Mitt Romney of giving a woman cancer and killing her was on a conference call hosted by Obama Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter that featured the same individual telling the exact same story as the one that was featured in the Obama Super-Pac ad. I’m sure it’s purely coincidental isn’t it? Gibbs, Cutter, and Burton all deny knowledge the campaign call. Uh huh.
“We have no idea when Priorities shot their spot,” an Obama campaign official said. “We’re not allowed to coordinate with them – but we can tell you it wasn’t when we shot ours.”
The aide didn’t answer questions about when the Obama campaign shot its Soptic footage or explain Cutter’s televised statement.
Priorities USA Action senior strategist Bill Burton said the super PAC found shot its Soptic footage at a union hall in early February.
“We didn’t know that he was doing an [Obama campaign] ad,” Burton said.
Kenneth Gross, a former associate general counsel for the Federal Election Commission, said the separation between campaigns and officially unaffiliated super PACs is a “fuzzy line.”
