The Missouri Democratic Party Wednesday filed an ethics complaint against Congressman Roy Blunt’s Senate campaign and Crossroads GPS, a group behind a negative campaign ad targeting Democrat Robin Carnahan that was released last week.
The party alleges illegal coordination between the Blunt campaign and the Crossroads GPS, which was formed by GOP minds Ed Gilespy and Karl Rove, who campaigned for Blunt early this summer.
“It is one thing for Karl Rove and Congressman Blunt to use their shady out-of-state political tricks to try and deceive Missourians,” said MDP spokesman Ryan Hobart. “It is absolutely unacceptable for Congressman Blunt and Karl Rove to try and find a backdoor to let out-of-state Big Oil and special interest cash fund inappropriate political attack ads here in Missouri.”
