I received my Brown for Senate Weekly Update e-mail this morning, which is a “weekly campaign wrap-up” intended to “keep you up-to-date with the happenings on the campaign trail”. Today’s e-mail describes campaign-related events from last week. Curiously absent from the list of items the Brown campaign chose to highlight was the senator’s guest opinion [...]

How obnoxious can U.S. Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) be? In a guest opinion published today in Bay Windows, a Massachusetts LGBT newspaper, Brown tells us that I don’t come before you with a checklist of items promising that I will be an advocate for you on each and every one of them. My opponent has [...]

Recently my family participated in Credo Mobile’s campaign “Tell Congress: Fight to pass the Respect for Marriage Act and repeal the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act”. In response, we received the following letter from Senator Scott Brown (R-Massachusetts). Sen. Brown clearly supports the discriminatory federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), but tries to change the [...]

I went to Scott Brown’s reelection campaign kick-off Thursday night. WHAT A SNOOZER. But it was entertaining to watch his attempt at stagecraft. The sidewalk was almost empty outside Worcester’s Mechanics Hall when I arrived about 5 pm. The event didn’t even warrant more than a few protesters, and they were busy being interviewed by [...]

We may be a year away from the 2012 general elections, but the race for the U. S. Senate seat currently occupied by Sen. Scott Brown (R-Massachusetts) has been in full swing since Elizabeth Warren officially announced her candidacy in September. A superstar of consumer advocacy, Warren has swiftly eclipsed her Democratic rivals and has [...]

U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) has been dodging questions about his stance on the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA, S811). ENDA would prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. But at a private company function in Massachusetts this week another of Senator Brown’s non-answers on ENDA revealed [...]

Much ado has been made about Senator Scott Brown's declining to appear in the Massachusetts delegation's It Gets Better video. Zack Ford at Think Progress gets to the heart of the matter though, outside of the Senator's willingness to put his support on YouTube, has he put his support behind the LGBT community in any [...]

The Massachusetts Congressional Delegation taped an “It Gets Better” message to LGBTQ teens. The message includes Senator John Kerry and Congressmembers Ed Markey, John Tierney, Jim McGovern, Bill Keating, Richard Neal, Niki Tsongas, John Olver, Mike Capuano, Stephen Lynch and Barney Frank appear in the one minute spot that directs viewers to log onto Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Youth (BAGLY)’s website.
This would be the entire Massachusetts Congressional delegation.
Oh wait, there’s one conspicuous absence.

Massachusetts’ election of Scott Brown to the Senate has resulted in the ill-founded meme that Massachusetts voters don’t want national health care reform. The reality is that Bay Staters with real experience with Massachusetts’ comprehensive health care system firmly back the passage of the health care reform bill now before Congress.

Senator Scott Brown (?-MA) has successfully snookered Brian Camenker of MassResistance. Southern Poverty Law Center categorizes MassResistance as an active anti-gay hate group. MassResistance is so fringe that the “mainstream” anti-gay organization Massachusetts Family Institute cut ties with them during the marriage debates in that state. According to a MassResistance e-mail that Camenker sent out [...]
