Elizabeth Warren slaps down Karl Rove, latest attack ad

By Hillary Chabot
Friday, December 9, 2011 - Updated 2 hours ago

A feisty Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren shot back at Republican strategist Karl Rove yesterday calling his second negative ad factually wrong and morally wrong after a University of Massachusetts at Lowell/Boston Herald poll found an earlier spot hurt her among voters.

I cant find the right words to describe how wrong that is. Factually wrong and morally wrong, said a miffed Warren about the 30-second spot released by the Rove-backed Crossroads GPS yesterday.

Karl Rove is not telling the truth, and I think anyone who is not telling the truth shouldnt be running ads in this race, she told the Herald. Warren has said she supports negative ads from outside groups so long as they are telling the truth, while U.S. Sen. Scott Brown has said he believes all outside groups should stay out of the race.

Warren brushed off her seven-point lead over Brown in the UMass Lowell/Herald poll and her favorability dip.

The poll found that her unfavorable ratings rose by 9 percent due to attack ads.
