Scott Brown Pays Homeless To Be His “Supporters”

The Scott Brown campaign has admitted that it has been paying homeless people to demonstrate in Boston’s working-class Roxbury neighborhood with signs declaring themselves “Obama Supporters for Brown.” Benjamin Thomas, the former city elections commissioner running the operation, tells the Boston Herald that these “supporters” are paid a per-diem that “works out to” about $8 an hour, financed through the GOP’s MassVictory program. But he insists that all of them would support Brown even if they weren’t being paid. Thomas, who is black, says the program is designed to appeal to black voters.  Read more…

Twelve years ago, Massachusetts inmate Robert Kosilek sued the state for the right to a sex change. Convicted of murdering his wife in 1990, Kosilek is serving a life sentence, and claimed that the surgery was necessary to effectively treat gender dysmorphia. After two lawsuits, U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled Kosilek was entitled to a sex change operation because it was considered a “serious medical need.” Keep reading »

Scott Brown’s Wife Likes Giving Handjobs

Senator-elect Scott Brown wasn’t the only one who showed some skin in the ’80s. Warning: this might make you uncomfortable. Before the Senator’s wife, Gail Huff, was a legit news anchor, she was a music video girl of the slutty variety. Check her out in this 1984 Digney Fingus video so appropriately entitled “The Girl With The Curious Hand.” In case you missed her, she is the girl in the bikini giving a hand job to a tube of sunscreen. Looks like she’s not the only woman in the family with talent. I guess we know where her eligible daughters Ayla and Arianna learned how to strut around in a bikini. No doubt she passed down her love of music. And sunscreen. Anyone else starting to think the Browns may be a little bit … er … different? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Cute Or Creepy? New MA Senator Scott Brown Announces His Daughters Are “Available”

Eeeek, you think your parents are embarrassing? Republican Scott Brown won a Senate seat in Massachusetts last night and used his victory speech to announce his college-aged daughters are single and ready to mingle. Arianna, who is pre-med at Syracuse, and Ayla, who appeared on “American Idol” and is a student at Boston College, stood by their dad’s side while he told millions of people watching on TV they were “both available”—then when corrected by Ayla, announced only “Ayla is definitely available.” The crowd started laughing and cheering and at this point his wife, Gail, shrieked, “Stop!”
