Not long after the hardworking staff posted Rachel Maddow Gets The Gift That Keeps On Giving (which detailed a conservative Michigan outfit’s Freedom of Information Act request for Internet searches of Maddow’s reporting by state university professors, don’t ask), we came across this full-page Boston Globe ad that ran last year:
As the Boston Herald described it at the time:
Liberal TV lioness Rachel Maddow is demanding an apology from GOP U.S. Sen. Scott Brown for raising campaign dough on scuttlebutt she’s planning to run against him in 2012 – a false rumor that was actually trumped up by Bay State Democrats.
Which got the hardwondering staff to wondering: Any chance Maddow would run against Brown next year?
So we asked her:
Dear Ms. Maddow:
Here at the Global Worldwide Headquarters of Campaign Outsider, the hardworking staff has been following your Michigan FOIA rumpus with great interest.
In our background research, we came across the Boston Globe ad you ran last year blowtorching Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (R-Why Am I Still Wearing Button-Down Shirts?)for fundraising off the false claim that you would run against him in the 2012 election.
Which got us to wondering – WOULD you run against him next year?
We eagerly await your reply.
The hardworking staff at Campaign Outsider
(Ask for us by name)
We’ll keep you posted.
