LANSING (AP) - The Michigan Democratic Party is taking aim at Republican attorney general candidate Bill Schuette with an ad accusing him of siding with insurance companies while he was a state Court of Appeals judge.
The ad released Tuesday features Maxine Hoover, whose 2-year-old son Michael was struck by a drunken driver in 1985 and left a quadriplegic.
She says Schuette ''showed no justice'' to her son.
Schuette was part of a three-judge panel that heard the case. He said the family should get less than what the other judges decided.
Schuette spokesman Rusty Hills says the ad twists and distorts the facts in a heart-wrenching case. He says Schuette was following the law.
The ad doesn't mention Schuette's Democratic opponent David Leyton.
