Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown was today accused by the state Democratic Party of gutter campaigning. Why?
It all started in Tuesday’s Democratic primary during which Elizabeth Warren took a potshot at Brown for posing for a nude photo spread for Cosmopolitan in the ’80s to help pay for school. Warren contrasted herself with Brown by saying that she chose to keep her clothes on, and instead took out loans to pay tuition.
And “thank God” she did, Scott Brown fired back in a radio interview today.
“I didn’t go to Harvard. I went to the school of hard knocks,” Brown elaborated. “I did what I had to do, and but not for having that opportunity, I never would have been able to pay for school, and never would have gone to school, and I wouldn’t probably be talking to you, so whatever.”
Now Sen. Brown is being cast as a misogynistic frat boy who, according to a Mass. Democratic Party operative, is sending “a terrible message that even accomplished women who are held in the highest esteem can be laughingly dismissed based on their looks.”
Remind me which candidate is running a gutter campaign?
