FactCheck Responds

FactCheck.org has reviewed the television spot targeting several Democratic U.S. House members, including Reps. Alan Mollohan, W.Va.-01, and Nick Rahall, W.Va.-03, and concludes that "the ad is filled with misleading claims."

The analysis notes that the "relatively unknown conservative group called the League of American Voters" behind the ad has received a “cease and desist” letter from the League of Women Voters. That league alleges that this other group is "using a name clearly designed to be confused with the League’s in order to disseminate misleading information and block health care reform."

FactCheck also responds to attacks leveled against it by the conservative group's leader in The Charleston Gazette.
