Ad By Crossroads, Karl Rove's Outfit, Yanked Off Air For Being False
Ad By Crossroads, Karl Rove's Outfit, Yanked Off Air For Being False

WASHINGTON -- An ad by Karl Rove-backed Crossroads GPS was yanked from rotation on a Montana cable show because it made claims that the network deemed false.

Recently a number of ads by the well-funded conservative outfit have been declared misleading and false, but the spot targeting Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) is apparently the first pulled from the air. The Associated Press reported that other outlets are still running the ad.

1. The guy is a fucking asshole--I raised a flag about the WARREN ad a few days ago.
The thing is vicious and packed with lies.

Crossroads GPS, which is affiliated with American Crossroads, has also been heavily criticized for ads in several other states, including spots attacking Democratic Senate contenders Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts and Tim Kaine in Virginia.

Greg Sargent of the Washington Post highlighted Friday how the Warren spot "falsely insinuates" that Warren supports violence by Occupy Wall Street protesters. And PolitiFact rated as "mostly false" claims made against Kaine. The Kaine spot also accused him of running a deficit as governor of Virginia, but Virginia state law prohibits deficits.


He's plainly going on the "Ya can't unring a bell" strategy. Get those lies out there, and let 'em percolate. I think the only way to shut his lying mouth is through court action--he's going to keep doing this, otherwise.

7. Thanks for this! I've added the info to Wikipedia.
It's in , right along with the National Republican Senatorial Committee ad that showed Tester with a full set of fingers, although in real life he's missing a few.
