A recent article from death and taxes found that in his time a Senator, Scott Brown found time to hold 30 DC fundraisers. But with his “busy schedule” he couldn’t find any time for his constituents to schedule a single town hall meeting.
According to Sunlight Foundation’s Political Party Time database, Brown has held 30 D.C. fundraisers and exactly zero Massachusetts town hall meetings.
In exchange for access, Scott Brown opened up shop with a who’s who on big time lobbyist groups:
In 2011, the D.C. lobbying firm Patton Boggs, whose clients include Wal-Mart, Northrop Grumman, Citigroup, Bristol-Meyers Squibb and Goldman Sachs, amongst many others, hosted a fundraiser for Scott Brown. You know, because the Walton family, defense contractors, pharmaceutical companies and banks really need that much more access.
Brown’s everyday man image he tries to portray is a facade, in his time as Senator he has not made himself available to voters in an open public meeting, the only way Scott Brown will allow you to get access is by invitation only fundraisers. If you are not on a donor list I guess you are out of luck.
