The campaign against Scott Brown has effectively been ten days long. Ten days is not a long time, but in that time we've learned a lot about Brown.
That's a lot to take in in ten days. Imagine if there'd been a longer campaign in which these stories emerged more gradually so voters had time to absorb them fully.
- Scott Brown suggested on television that President Obama was born out of wedlock, then tried to claim that Martha Coakley was making things up when her campaign called attention to it.
- Scott Brown voted against aid to 9/11 recovery workers because it was too expensive, at the same time he was trying to fund a golf course in his district and give tax subsidies to corporations.
- Scott Brown tried to deny emergency contraception to rape victims. When he was called on it, he tried to deny the truth, then hid behind his daughters.
- Scott Brown claimed he didn't know anything about any Tea Parties, even though he'd appeared at their rallies and publicized fundraisers they threw for him.
- Scott Brown opposes a fee to get back bailout money from the biggest banks.
