Latest ads attacking Sen. Claire McCaskill revealed
American Crossroads, Karl Rove’s high-powered PAC, is coming after Sen. Claire McCaskill again. Earlier this summer, the PAC went after McCaskill with a strange faux-news ad saying she uses a “body double” because she has touted fiscal responsibility then voted for tax hikes.
A new radio spot and billboard focus on McCaskill’s Planegate fiasco from earlier this year. McCaskill had used public funds to pay for some campaign trips that she and her husband took on a plane they owned. Making that revelation even more damaging was that the couple owed more than a quarter-million dollars in back taxes on the plane. She has since paid up. American Crossroads put up the billboard above at the Springfield Airport and Lambert St. Louis International Airport.
