Crossroads GPS May Change Its Tone, But The Falsehoods Remain The Same

The Karl Rove-affiliated group Crossroads GPS may be "tired of all these negative political ads" (an overwhelming number of which actually come from, you guessed it, Crossroads GPS), but they certainly haven't seemed to tire of lying to Nevada's voters. The group's latest ad, though different in tone from their many other attacks on Harry Reid, contains the same basic falsehoods — that legislation Senator Reid supports has made things worse for Nevadans. However, Reid's support of programs such as the Affordable Care Act has actually made things better, especially for Nevada's seniors and the uninsured. In addition, Crossroads GPS dishonestly places blame on Harry Reid for policies that were actually pushed by the Bush administration.

In Attack On Sen. Reid, Campaign For Working Families' Dishonesty Is "Staggering"

A new ad from Campaign for Working Families exploits fears about the economy and employment to impugn Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). The ad, titled "Staggering," suggests that Reid and the Democratic policies he supported are entirely responsible for "record deficits, a failed stimulus, reckless bailouts, the destruction of our health care, and tragic unemployment." The reality, though, is that had these policies not been implemented, the state of the economy would have been significantly worse, and millions more Americans would have been without work and uninsured. In addition, deficits exploded because of Bush-era policies and the recession, and those "reckless bailouts" actually helped stabilize the economy.

American Action Network Lies About Rep. Titus & Viagra For Rapists

In a new, outrageously deceptive ad, the American Action Network (AAN) asserts that Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV) voted to allow convicted sex offenders to have access to free Viagra. In reality, the amendment that would have forbidden access to Viagra for sex offenders was introduced in the Senate and was widely regarded as a slick political ploy on the part of Republican Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK).

Americans For Tax Reform Launches Another Deceptive Ad — This One Against Rep. Titus

Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) launched an ad attempting to deceive voters by casting baseless doubt on the integrity and seriousness of Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV). In depicting comedian Stephen Colbert's testimony before a subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee, ATR slyly insinuates that Titus doesn't treat her job with proper gravity, and the ad never mentions that Titus is not a member of the House Judiciary Committee and had nothing to do with Colbert's invitation to testify. Furthermore, the ad falsely suggests that Titus voted to "[go] home" before dealing with the expiration of the Bush tax cuts despite the fact that Titus voted against the resolution to adjourn. To top it all off, Titus isn't — as ATR falsely suggests — "helping Nancy Pelosi set the stage for one of the biggest tax increases in history." In fact, it was Republicans who "set the stage" for the expiration of the tax cuts by writing it into the bill in order to hide the true cost of the tax cuts.

Angle Ad Smears Sen. Reid Using GOP "Gotcha" Amendment On Viagra For Sex Offenders

At the start of her new ad "Big Clue," Sharron Angle tells us she personally approves the message that follows. She shouldn't have. The ad is as disgusting as it is predictable. After launching two tired attacks (on the stimulus, which actually did work, and on Reid's support for immigration reform) Angle drops the big one: Harry Reid wants to give Viagra to "convicted child molesters and sex offenders." If that seems crazy, stupid, or offensive, that's because it's all three: Republicans carefully set up these attacks during the health care debate when Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) forced a vote on an amendment preventing states from providing Viagra to sex offenders. Their attempt to derail the landmark Affordable Care Act failed. This smear should too.

Americans For New Leadership Repeats Medicare Lie In Attack On Sen. Reid

Americans for New Leadership, a 527 group founded by Tea Party activist Eric Odom, is raising money to get their "Harry Reid Is Wrong For Nevada" ad on the air. The ad accuses Reid of supporting a "$500 billion Medicare cut" that simply doesn't exist in the Affordable Care Act, and implies that Reid's support for the Recovery Act, clean energy legislation and the unpopular TARP rescue package prove that Reid is "Wrong for Nevada." In reality, Congress' response to the economic crisis pulled us back from the brink, and clean energy laws would strengthen the economy further.

Ad Check: Sharron Angle Is Not In "Love" With The Facts

Sharron Angle has released a new campaign ad, titled "Love Triangle," attacking Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Obama.  The ad blames the Democrats for the bank bailout, claims the Recovery Act "failed," and suggests that progressive economic policies are responsible for "record deficits and skyrocketing unemployment." In reality, the bailout, deficits and job losses date back to the Bush administration, and the Recovery Act has improved the dismal economic situation that was created by Republicans.

GOP Record On Immigration Suggests Sen. Reid Is Right

The National Republican Senatorial Committee is attacking Majority Leader Harry Reid for saying, "I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican," but Sen. Reid's comments make a lot of sense when you consider the record. Republicans have said and done plenty to alienate Hispanic voters in recent years. By condemning efforts to fix our immigration system as "amnesty," by killing comprehensive immigration reform in the Senate in 2006 and 2007, by writing laws that encourage law enforcement to target Hispanics, and by spreading misinformation about the impact of illegal immigration on our economy and society, the GOP has earned the distrust of Hispanic voters.

Ad Check: American Crossroads Smears Sen. Reid Over Stimulus

A new ad from American Crossroads — the so-called "shadow RNC" launched by Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie — attacks Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) over the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.  Specifically, the ad claims that Nevada received less stimulus money than "every other state but one."  However, data from Recovery.gov and ProPublica.org unequivocally shows the claim to be false.
