Republican strategist Karl Rove on Fox News Sunday advised the Obama campaign to stop suggesting that Mitt Romney may be a felon over allegedly inaccurate statements he made on his SEC forms regarding Bain.
"The fact of the matter is that if the president continues to make this charge -- this outrageous charge that his campaign had that Mitt Romney is guilty of felonious activity, could've committed a felony -- that's a big mistake," Rove said. "Remember who's up for grabs in this election: independent voters."
Rove, who runs the GOP super PAC American Crossroads, said independents were drawn to Obama's promise to transcend politics as usual in 2008 and predicted the felony charge won't work with them. "This is gutter politics of the worst Chicago sort," he said.
