It’s been quiet on the People’s Pledge front since Sen. Scott Brown (R-Walking Around Money) ponied up $1000 earlier this month because a group supporting him ran some Google ads. (His challenger Elizabeth Warren (D-Google This) directed the money to an autism group.)
But check out this item from Politico’s Morning Score:
EXCLUSIVE – DSCC TO HIT BROWN, HELLER FOR TIES TO OIL INDUSTRY: At 5:30 p.m. the Senate will vote on Senator Robert Menendez’s “Repeal Big Oil Tax Subsidies Act.” In advance of the vote the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is launching an online petition to rally support for the cause. When they unveil it later this morning, they’ll specifically go after Scott Brown of Massachusetts and Dean Heller of Nevada. They’ll also hit Virginia media with targeted messaging on George Allen’s past votes to protect tax breaks for oil companies. Petition: http://bit.ly/GSvRWA.
Here’s what it looks like:
The DSCC issued a press release directly attacking Brown:
ETCH A SKETCH ALERT: Big Oil Vote Today — Scott Brown May Shake It Up In Election Year
After Voting To Preserve Massive Tax Breaks For Big Oil Companies, Brown May Try And Shake Away His Three Votes For Big Oil Tax Breaks
Last week Scott Brown’s top political advisor outlined the “etch-a-sketch” reelection strategy, and today Scott Brown may be preparing to give us a demonstration. Brown has repeatedly voted to protect huge tax breaks for Big Oil companies and make seniors and middle class families shoulder the burden. In return for his work, Big Oil campaign contributors have showered Brown with nearly $200,000 in contributions. Now that Brown is in the fight of his political life he may pull an election year “etch-a-sketch,” and try to shake away his record supporting taxpayer funded subsidies for his Big Oil contributors.
So should Warren have to fork over some dough for this?
You tell us.
