|Mitt Romney killed his wife ad for Super PAC Same Clothes|
Today on the show, separate from any other observations/stories about this, we noticed the Joe Soptik connections in both Obama for America's ad in May and the Super PAC "Mitt Romney Killed My Wife" ad.
The FEC may have cause to look into collusion between the Obama Campaign and the Super PAC making the Mitt Romney killed my wife ad.
He's wearing the same clothes and it looks like old Joe has made it a cottage industry to be pitchman for the Obama Campaign.
Proves collusion, no?
Even Politico noticed the similarities:
When President Obama’s aides said they weren’t familiar with former Missouri steelworker Joe Soptic’s life story, all they had to do was check their own campaign archives.

Asked about the Priorities spot on MSNBC Wednesday morning, Robert Gibbs said he doesn’t “know the specifics” while Stephanie Cutter said on CNN: “I don’t know the facts about when Mr. Soptic’s wife got sick or the facts about his health insurance.”
The aide didn’t answer questions about when the Obama campaign shot its Soptic footage or explain Cutter’s televised statement.
Priorities USA Action senior strategist Bill Burton said the super PAC found shot its Soptic footage at a union hall in early February.
“We didn’t know that he was doing an [Obama campaign] ad,” Burton said.
Kenneth Gross, a former associate general counsel for the Federal Election Commission, said the separation between campaigns and officially unaffiliated super PACs is a “fuzzy line.”
“You don’t know where they got the footage from,” Gross said. “They could have gotten it from a common vendor or not a common vendor. It could have been obtained without coordination. I doubt it was a direct transfer from the campaign to the group, Priorities USA.”
