Republican Senate hopeful Scott Brown has filed a state ethics complaint after a report that a union backing rival Martha Coakley used state resources to urge workers to volunteer for her campaign.Whose job is it to investigate this complaint? The Attorney General, Martha Coakley, who is the very same candidate SEIU is helping. Good luck with that.
After Brown’s complaint Wednesday, the operations director of Service Employees International Local 509 said it mistakenly sent an e-mail to state employee members Nov. 20 asking them to volunteer for the Democratic attorney general.
It surprises me that this special election in Massachusetts has not generated more attention. Scott Brown is an excellent candidate, a fiscal conservative, and this election could and should be a referendum on the direction the country is heading:
“People underestimate how intensely voters feel about the issues of taxing and spending,’’ said Eric Fehrnstrom, a Brown adviser. “It’s hard for voters to differentiate between what’s happening in Washington and at the State House in Massachusetts, because for them it all means government is out of control and it’ll cost them in the long run.’’Sure, this is Massachusetts, and it is Teddy's open seat, but voters are angry all over.
Scott Brown's website is here, and his Twitter feed is here.
Update: Michelle Malkin links, and has more about SEIU. Jumping in Pools also has a post, urging the conservative blogosphere to wake up and support Brown.
