Scott Brown’s gone to Washington. And something’s gone horribly wrong.
That’s the opening line of this TV spot just launched by the League of Conservation Voters:
The rest of the script:
Brown sided with big oil — taking thousands from oil companies just weeks before he voted to keep their special tax breaks. And Brown voted repeatedly against protecting our environment and public health. No wonder Brown got a zero rating from the League of Conservation Voters. Tell Senator Brown enough’s enough. Ask him to support the “Close Big Oil Tax Loopholes Act.”
Targeting the famous pickup truck
It was only a matter of time.
U.S. Sen. Scott Brown’s historic underdog win made his blue-collar pick up truck a national iconic symbol of his common man appeal. So it’s only fair that the truck takes center stage in the most recent attack ad against the Republican.
The League of Conservation Voters launched an advertising campaign today on cable and network channels in the Boston area. I saw the ad on WHDH Channel 7 this morning.
The ad features the truck zooming along while the driver — presumably the Wrentham Republican – tosses trash out the window into a river while his famed vehicle leaks oil.
“Scott Brown came to Washington portraying himself as a moderate, but his zero percent LCV environmental score proves he’s been anything but as a Senator,” said Gene Karpinski, LCV President, in a statement. “It’s past time that Senator Brown started voting to protect public health, instead of polluters.”
There’s also this from Elizabeth Warren house organ Blue Mass Group.
Nothing yet from Brown’s campaign website, but give it time.
