Elizabeth Warren just sent precisely the right email to her supporters, and asked us to share it. I love the tone, and I think she knocked this one out of the park.
Here’s the email:
Elizabeth Warren for Senate
I spend a lot of time talking about Scott Brown’s voting record — and Scott Brown doesn’t like it one bit.
Yesterday, a news reporter asked Scott Brown to respond to my statement that he supports the national Republican agenda. Scott Brown said — and I quote:
“I don’t need Professor Warren talking or speaking or commenting on my votes.”
Sorry, Scott. I am not going to stop talking. If you don’t want anyone to talk about your votes, you shouldn’t have voted that way.
Scott Brown voted against three jobs bills that would have supported 22,000 jobs in Massachusetts. I’m going to keep talking about that.
Scott Brown voted to protect tax breaks for oil companies, some of the most profitable companies on the planet, rather than investing in clean energy. I’m going to keep talking about that.
Scott Brown voted against the Buffett Rule, legislation that would make sure millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share in taxes. I’m going to keep talking about that.
Scott Brown voted against equal pay for women. I’m going to keep talking about that.
And Scott Brown voted for the Blunt amendment to limit women’s access to birth control and cancer screenings. I’m going to keep talking about that.
I’m not going to stop talking, and I hope you won’t either. Talk to your friends — call them, Facebook, tweet, send them a fax if you’re old fashioned. Talk to the person behind you at the grocery store, and talk to the person pumping gas next to you.
Let them know why this race is so important.
We can do a lot more than talk about Scott Brown’s voting record — we can hold him accountable for it on Election Day.
Thank you for being a part of this,
P.S. There is a lot at stake for women in this election. Listen to our new radio ad about the dangerous Republican agenda for women:
I think we’re seeing the other side of the “likeable” Scott Brown in the Herald piece — “I don’t need Professor Warren talking or speaking or commenting on my votes.” Sounds like another example of the contempt Scott Brown has for women. It sounds to me as though our junior senator prefers his women to be silent and subservient.
