WATCH: Rove’s Dark Money Group Releases New Attack Ad

The election may be over, but Karl Rove’s dark money group isn’t going away.

Crossroads GPS, the 501(c)(4) “social welfare” spinoff of Rove’s Super PAC, has released a new ad attacking President Obama’s efforts to avoid the so-called “fiscal cliff.”
