The pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA unleashed an awful ad this week that blamed Mitt Romney for the death of a steel worker’s wife.
But, as Ace reported yesterday…
Here’s the real Joe Soptic timeline:
** Mitt Romney left Bain in 1999 to work on Olympics.
** GST Steel in Kansas City was shut down in 2001.
** Top Obama bundler Jonathan Lavine was in charge of Bain Capital at the time.
** Soptic was offered a buy-out.
** Soptic took another job but declined to purchase their insurance plan.
** Soptic’s wife had her own health insurance plan through 2003.
** In 2006, Soptic’s wife was diagnosed — diagnosed! — with very late-stage cancer.
** She died 22 days after diagnosis.
** The pro-Obama PAC Priorities USA cuts an ad blaming Romney for her death.
UPDATE: Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter dropped from her “This Week” appearance after she was caught in a lie about the campaign’s relationship to Joe Soptic.
