Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren is apparently still seething over political ads targeting her during her successful 2012 campaign, calling them “dark and creepy” in a new mailer to prospective donors.

Karl Rove’s conservative nonprofit Crossroads GPS painted the Massachusetts liberal as a tool of Wall Street in one television ad and as a Socialist sympathizer siding with leftists behind the Occupy Wall Street movement.

The ads cut into her favorable ratings, but Warren nonetheless defeated Republican incumbent Scott Brown.

In a new solicitation paid for by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Warren pleads for donations to counter an imminent onslaught of negative campaigning against her colleagues. She said of the ads targeting her, “They were dark and creepy and seemed to be telling voters that I was a Wall Street-loving zombie who was going to eat everyone’s brains. (At least that’s how I remember them.)"

She continued, “My fellow Democrats who are up for re-election in 2014 are already getting pounded by these attack ads right at this very minute.”

The New York Times says the group Americans for Prosperty recently launched a $1.8 million television advertising campaign targeting Democratic Senate candidates in Iowa and Michigan, which President Obama captured in the 2012 election.

In a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed piece, Rove said the GOP will pick up four to six seats in the House and narrowly take control of the Senate.

The November 2011 Crossroads GPS ad targeting Warren said that instead of focusing on jobs, the candidate was busy sympathizing “with extreme left protests” involving people who “attack police, do drugs and trash public parks … they support radical redistribution of wealth. And violence.”

The December 2011 ad called her a Wall Street stooge who was a hypocrite for standing up for the middle class, accusing her of “bailing out the same banks that helped cause the financial meltdown” and who later “went on a charm offensive with some of the same banks that got bailed out.”
