Scott Brown questions Edward Markey’s state residency in jab at possible opponent

Source: Boston Globe

Senator Scott Brown today took on a possible opponent in a special election to succeed his colleague John F. Kerry, questioning whether US Representative Edward J. Markey is actually a resident of Massachusetts.

Brown has hinted he would compete in the special election but not made a formal commitment to a race, while Markey has said he will run if Kerry is confirmed as President Obama’s second-term secretary of state.

“I’ll tell you what; They’re making it awfully tempting. You got Ed Markey: Does he even live here any more?” Brown said with a laugh as he called into the “Jim & Margery Show” on WTKK-FM.

“You’ve got to check the travel records. I’ve come back and forth (from Washington to Boston) every weekend, almost, for three years, and I see, you know, most of the delegation, and I have never seen Ed on the airplane - ever,” Brown added.

1. Voters were already turned off by his negative attacks on Elizabeth Warren

This shows once again that Brown has nothing to show for his 2 years as Senator and thus he'll go negative just to win.

Also a trip from Washington DC to Boston on Amtrak is about 6 hours, perhaps he took the train instead?

12. I worked in DC for quite a few years.

I have family and interests in MA, and have had for all my life.

I regularly "made the trek" from DC to MA. Quite often, by CAR.

It's nine hours, tops. If you leave in the still of the night you can make very good time.

Further, you can every so often get a "log" flight to Bedford, if you know how to play it.


If he keeps bringing this shit up, then it's only natural that we ask about HIS living arrangements. His WIFE is employed in DC. And if we're going to get down and dirty and start talking about people's living arrangements, let's talk about their pasts, too...he's opening up cans of worms in a rather self-destructive way.

No wonder Gail wasn't perturbed by "Cosmo Boy."

DC area.

19. It's almost like he's self-destructing, on purpose!

"How can I screw up my campaign before I even kick it off? I know--I'll accuse my opponent of doing what I have been doing, myself! Yeaaaah....that's the ticket!!"

4. LOL. The first thing Scott Brown did was to buy a nice house around DC and to find a job for his

wife there, exactly what he reproaches to Ed Markey (well, I do not mean Markey found a job for his wife. Just that she has been working in and around DC for a long time).

5. Go on, Scott Brown. Your credibility is already very low, and you are making it easy for the MA folk

 

to decide who to vote for.

Not the State residency thing again!! We already know how subjective those little things can be. Just ask Mittens. He's written the book on it.

8. Ole Scotty is still the darling of RW radio..even as that station gets ready to switch formats.

Scott Brown showed his leadership as a Senator with his cliff vote...wait to see what everyone else is doing, pick the best possible political move and vote with the majority. For weeks he was quiet how he would vote. He spent the election saying "no way" to any tax increases and when it came time to vote found the wind blowing in one direction and he followed right along. I can't stand him and his frat boy sense of humor.

9. Scott better watch it--his WIFE moved to DC a while ago to work at Albritton's hate TV station....

For someone whose wife has been working OUTSIDE Massachusetts, in DC, for two years, now, he's doing a lot of shooting off his big fat mouth. What, is she living in a trailer?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gail_Huff

Gail Huff is an American broadcast journalist and the wife of Scott Brown, U.S. Senator from Massachusetts.

Huff works as a television reporter for WJLA-TV in Washington, D.C.., after seventeen years for WCVB-TV, Channel 5, the ABC network affiliate in Boston....in 2010, she took a position with WJLA-TV in Washington, D.C..


What a fucking idiot the guy is...let's call attention to HIS living arrangements! Break out the tax returns, too--let's see how Gail filed...!!!

13. This is in keeping with Scotty's ideal of debating the issues.

What, couldn't he find an Indian or Kenyan in Markey's Ancestry.com file?

I can't believe I'm going to have to listen to this guy for one minute more in my lifetime.

Anyone remember who won when he attacked Senator-elect Warren on not being Native American enough?

Didn't want to take a chance that you'd get all nude on the flight.

21. Hey Scoot, maybe we should check your birth records: "Maine"

Scott Brown is now a KNOWN knuckle-dragger Republican, no matter how much lipstick he may apply.
Massachusetts voters won't be fooled again.

25. This is the best he can do?

This is his opening salvo? Really?
"I haven't seen Markey sitting on the same plane with me, so he never comes home."
Outside of Howie Carr (Boston Herald political nitwit), the blowhards on Boston's right-wing talk radio and the wingnuts who pay attention to them, this won't have the slightest impact on anything.

26. Brown never questioned Rep. Markey before...

But now that he wants that senate seat, he'll invent questionable circumstances. Remember the GOP motto, keep repeating the lies until the masses believe them. I wish Brown would squirm away like the worm that he is.

27. Seriously?

Scott Brown brings up residency??? In the state where Mittens was governor??? Where Mittens voted for Scott based on residing in his son's basement???

Not an issue I'd want to bring up if I were him. Just sayin'.
