ABC17News fact-checks my opponent’s TV attack ad
COLUMBIA – A political ad from the campaign of state Sen. Caleb Rowden (R-Columbia) attacks his Democratic opponent on her work in the health care field. Then-state auditor Claire McCaskill released a review of the University of Missouri Health System’s billing practices in 2002.
It’s not the first time the audit has been used against Baker in a campaign. Blaine Luetkemeyer brought up the audit in their 2008 race for U.S. House of Representatives. McCaskill defended Baker on the campaign trail, saying Baker “had nothing to do with those [billing] systems being set up at the hospital.” She said Baker was brought in to fix the problems the audit found.
