Connecticut Democrats are questioning why WWE, formerly known as World Wrestling Entertainment, has recently removed some of its "edgier" material from YouTube, and Republican candidate Linda McMahon responded to those claims Tuesday.
The videos are the latest in the constant attacks between Democratic U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy and McMahon as they vie for the right to succeed Joe Lieberman in the U.S. Senate.
Sexually explicit videos from the WWE during the time when McMahon was the CEO of the company were removed Monday afternoon. She resigned from the company in 2009 when she decided to run for Senate.
"Everyone has their own taste for entertainment," McMahon said. "I think the WWE is grateful for the millions that watch all over the world."
McMahon said she no longer has the ability to control what the WWE does since she resigned. That includes removing videos from the Internet.
"Chris Murphy's implication or assertion that the WWE is coordinating with Linda McMahon's U.S. Senate is untrue, to do so is unlawful," the WWE said in a statement Tuesday.
"They don't want people to see. Linda McMahon has made her fortune by promoting sex and violence to young children," said Nancy DiNardo, chairwoman of the Connecticut Democratic Party.
McMahon feels it is a distraction from Democrats, who are trying to get the heat off Murphy. She said he will not give up details about a mortgage deal that he got despite being sued for foreclosure and why he missed nearly 200 congressional hearings during the 2008 fiscal crisis.
The latest mailer from McMahon implies that Murphy went to Yankee games and museums instead of attending congressional hearings. McMahon's campaign has not proven where Murphy was.
"Congressman Murphy said say where he was or what he was doing," McMahon said.
Democrats are worried about the money McMahon's campaign is spending, and according to Murphy's campaign, McMahon is spending $60,000 a day.
Murphy has not made himself available to Eyewitness News for days.
