And to -- there is breaking news from the campaign trail as there is new evidence linking the Obama campaign with the controversial pro Obama super pac known as priorities USA.
Now this evidence appears to indicate that campaign officials closely coordinated with -- organizers.
On the ad released yesterday the blames and Mitt Romney for the cancer death of a steel worker's wife.
Now such coordination would be a blatant and very serious violation of federal election law.
Now in a moment attorney and author and columnist Ann Coulter will react -- first.
Let's take a look at how we got to this point we begin by taking a brief look at the super pac ad that features a man who claims the governor Romney and Bain Capital.
Are responsible for his wife's death.
And in and one day she -- she became ill and that I took -- of the Jackson county hospital room.
And in -- commander for pneumonia and that's -- their family cancer and by the end -- stage four rumors it was there's nothing they can do for her.
And she passed away and -- two days.
I do not think Mitt Romney realizes what he's done anymore.
And I and furthermore do not think Mitt Romney is concerned.
-- today the president White House aides in campaign officials have all refused to condemn that -- impact.
Press Secretary Jay Carney campaign advisor Robert Gibbs and deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter.
Are among the many Obama confidant who have said they simply cannot comment on this because they are not familiar with this -- story.
Now they have also attempted to distance the White House and the campaign from the super -- by reminding reporters there legally not permitted to coordinate with such organizations.
But there are few problems with this defense number one the very same steel worker that starred in the official Obama campaign and that was released in May eighth.
See if you recognize this man.
I was devastated.
Makes me anger.
Those guys -- all Rich -- have more money than they'll ever stand yet they didn't have the money to take care of the very people that made the money from home.
That we even have to be featured in that video on the campaign wants you don't believe it doesn't know anything about this man and here's what Stephanie Cutter said.
That this morning.
We don't have anything to do with priorities USA.
That by -- or not allowed to coordinate with them and bylaw we don't have anything to do with their ads I don't know the facts of -- -- subject's -- got sick.
Or when she died but as I said before I do know the facts of what Mitt Romney did with -- -- I -- you know the facts of how just -- lost his job lost its health care.
The entire company went bankrupt.
Don't know the facts Stephanie -- report we have uncovered some audio that punches well a few holes in your story namely the fact that you hosted a conference call.
During which Joseph -- optic explain the details about his wife stepped.
Listen -- this.
A little while later -- was diagnosed with lung cancer.
I had a clarion county hospital and she didn't have health care act when the temperature of the way our -- whether -- bill.
You have to let Mitt Romney did -- places -- years he's still you can tell he's only worried about one group of people.
And that's what people like Tim people at the -- you can expect much much more from.
Says he likes to fire people it's no concern about what they're doing so in the news now turn to call back -- just -- Hey thank you so greatly appreciate you hit -- sharing -- experience.
I guess Stephanie doesn't always story now -- -- -- -- the moral courage to come out.
And -- that ad that accuses Mitt Romney murder on the conference call audio you just -- in the -- that you just saw are two critical pieces of evidence.
That suggests that the Obama campaign is in fact in close coordination with the super pac.
And a federal election laws are being broken we the people we deserve to know.
-- here with analysis to this developing story is the author of the best selling book demonic.
Which by the way is now available in paperback.
The one and only -- Coulter.
Good to act are right let's go through this in detail Stephanie Cutter is -- line.
Do you as a lawyer constitutional lawyer do you think there issues here in terms coordination with the campaign in the super pac in spite of what they're saying.
There could well video I think the bigger issue is how repulsive this and he has this man.
His wife didn't even have health insurance through his job she had a health insurance through her job.
On she lost her job years asked -- the plant was closed down.
Would you Bain had kept going for another four years they kept this -- -- -- It then closed down.
It was a law after Romney -- and Bain Capital.
It was -- five years before she got cancer and I.
This is it is exactly what we talked about last week Obama is a liar is a repulsive despicable -- it shows the true colors of the man.
That oh we thought let's hope and change no it was just too young to show was -- his true colors.
Look there's got to be -- at some point has got to backfire.
Because he presented a very different image.
But they would have you believe do you believe that Mitt Romney.
Could cause you to get cancer.
Do you believe -- father would be embarrassed that he's running for the highest office in the land he believed that he's a felony believing in pay taxes for ten years he variety hates women and eight.
I'll still and it reminds me how glad I am more running again Mitt Romney against this despicable campaign her.
Because they can't go into his divorce records they can't get.
And staying on and he makes you one mean look like Paris in this guide.
You've cut me as could be eight.
But I must say I think when you say is there a turning point I think -- -- would be the turning point and most Americans would say this is absolutely despicable blaming this woman's death.
On Mitt Romney and we had Romney -- spokesman.
Andrea so -- her response was not that it was despicable not that Bain had that.
Bet that that that Romney have left Spain five years earlier or the -- the woman died five years after the plant closed and didn't even get her insurance from drummer husband.
What what she had lived in Massachusetts west Mitt Romney's health care plan she would have have a health insurance.
Anyone who donates to Mitt Romney and I mean the big don't donors ought to call Mitt Romney and -- Andrea Saul is a firing off the campaign tomorrow.
They're not giving another Don because it is not worth fighting for this man is this is the kind of spokesman he has to respond to an -- like this.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But -- what we're watching you witnessing here I -- -- I'm -- are -- -- -- I really think you're doing your shot.
I agree with you don't want to not going to -- convention and pushing for this man if he isn't going morons like this Vista and is a turning point and she has nearly.
-- it's not -- right from the jaws and if you're at point off the campaign.
We did the president now is the architect of the ugly -- campaign in modern political hit yes OK now the question is.
With all these accusations.
That they just reached too far does -- get to a point people that -- -- our eyes and say all what you know next time it's gonna be Paul Ryan.
Stabbing a woman right on the -- -- -- heart nineteen times slicing a -- three pops to the back of the head.
And then they throw overboard.
No it is it is truly shocking and of course it also reminds us once again.
What Obama doesn't wanna talk about and that's his record and how he's wrecking American healthcare how -- put millions of people out of work.
How he's quadruples the federal deficit he can't talk about his record people are out of work you know and vision thing -- on the New York Times.
Yesterday I'm I'm I'm I've been sort of shocked at the polls showing the candidates as close as they are.
But one interesting poll was that.
-- I think was -- all of the swing states or many of the swing states.
A majority of of the respondents of likely voters say they think that they will do worse under the economy.
On endorse Obama get off I hears it and that's all we -- an important question here because everyone knows that they -- that Romney is gonna turn this economy around.
Here is an important question now what did Obama know about this -- and when did he know it because.
In -- in spite of Stephanie Cutter as -- -- laid out here tonight which the mainstream media doesn't do their job right we laid out in fact she spoke with the man.
She said she was on a conference call with him.
The Obama campaign ran and ran an ad with the same guy I mean -- than that super pac runs it.
So now we have a question what does Obama know what everybody in this campaign.
-- let me -- -- won't condemn Harry Reid won't condemn this -- know this is.
All coming directly from Obama I mean he hasn't been in politics that long that's -- the perfect Democrat to -- he doesn't cover enough of a record well yeah as a record now.
Want to keep coming from his campaign's -- different -- Isn't always his -- doing it's not always his democratic minority leader in the senate doing it sometimes it's the media doing it for him.
-- how always around Obama a vicious -- more motorists slashing attacks on his an opponent I -- last time that you wrote about this and in a recent column this is not the first time honest this is annual divorce records this is his -- -- personal attacks.
And now that he can't mention anything he's done for the last four years old this is going to be the ugly -- campaign -- yes.
And we cannot have Romney's spokesman coming up with completely idiotic but what -- in response -- from ankle to.
Well I think I just -- added a little while I Obama is a liar using wired this is not helping change it is not true that that Romney had and you and -- -- saying -- And then talk radio and Hannity and rush in and within the realization that -- we can do what but aren't we can do it better without the drag of Romney's campaign spokesman -- came from the McCain campaign.
Great idea or it wouldn't take a break.
