Yesterday, Scott Brown accused Elizabeth Warren’s parents of being liars.
As those of you who have followed the U.S. Senate race closely know, Elizabeth’s parents raised four children — three sons who served in the military a daughter who went to college and law school, raised two children and worked all her life on an issue that mattered. They were good people.
Scott Brown should know better than to go after people who are not around to defend themselves, but his behavior around the latest Native American heritage issue has shown his true colors: that he will say and do anything to win.
This is also consistent with the latest news on Scott Brown’s Karl Rove like campaign manager, Jim Barnett – a Republican operative with a history of nasty attacks and dirty campaigning.
Usually, Barnett makes the attacks and Brown hides behind him at a distance, but yesterday Brown took it a step further.
Families should be off limits, the dead should be off limits, and a Senator should just behave better than that. Scott Brown should apologize – not just for his latest stepping over the line, but for running a campaign that is so separated from the issues and so centered on mud-slinging and tearing down his opponent.
