Karl Rove's Crossroads group is launching an ad attacking Massachusetts Democratic Senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren. The right wing group attacks Warrens strongly for her support of Occupy Wall Street.
According to the Huffington Post, this is the first major ad buy in the Massachusetts race.
The ad says that 'we need jobs, not intellectual theories and radical protests.
It also consistently attacks the Occupy protesters themselves, saying they attack police, do drugs and trash public parks. They support radical redistribution of wealth and violence.
Before the ad had come out, Warren's campaign pre-emptively criticized Rove and Crossroads and asked for money to help push back in this e-mail to supporters, Huffington Post reported:
A few minutes ago, we learned that Crossroads GPS, the group of right-wing billionaires fronted by Karl Rove, is about to launch a wave of attack ads in Massachusetts as soon as tomorrow. They just bought hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of TV time, and you know they'll have the money to stay on the air, reads an email the campaign sent to supporters.
