According to the audit, the misspending of federal weatherization funds occurred in 2009, while Senate President Tomblin did not begin acting as governor until Nov. 15, 2010.
Stadelman said the campaign is not planning a response ad to the attack, noting, "It's so far off-base ... Everyone's saying its garbage."
Calls to Maloney campaign spokeswoman Michelle Yi were not returned Monday.
Also Monday, the Tomblin campaign launched a TV spot touting recent successes in attracting new business investment, including a $150 million distribution center for Macy's, currently under construction in Martinsburg.
The ad features video of the April 15 groundbreaking, and includes comments from company president Peter Longo.
"Macy's could have put this in a lot of places, but acting Gov. Tomblin shook my hand and said, 'Peter, I want you to know West Virginia is open for business.' We had a real deal and the start of a great relationship that day, and I thank you so much for that."
The 30-second spot goes on to cite other business investments announced during the past 10 months, ending with Tomblin stating, "It's just the beginning. There's more work to be done."
