Recently, tucked in a few longer articles about endorsements in the Massachusetts Senate race between Scott Brown (R) and Elizabeth Warren (D) was the news that the International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Asbestos Workers Union, Local 6, had staged a protest outside a Brown press conference to set the record straight regarding a misleading attack ad Brown ran against Warren. Via the Boston Globe
…asbestos union workers stood outside Brown’s press conference and said they were irate over Brown’s latest television advertisement that attacks Warren for representing Travelers Insurance as part of a lawsuit related to asbestos poisoning. The event was coordinated by Democrats, who are backed strongly by the unions.
The new Brown ad quotes Warren saying, “I’ve been out there working for people who have been injured by big corporations.”
A narrator then says: “Warren helped Travelers Insurance restrict payments to victims of asbestos poisoning. The results were disastrous for victims. The insurance company saved millions, and Elizabeth Warren got paid 40 times what they paid victims. Elizabeth Warren is just not who she says she is.”
