Massachusetts Senator (and former “nice guy”) Scott Brown does not condone his top staffers war-whooping and tomahawk-chopping like a bunch of vulgar Atlanta fans, and so he has given them “their one and only warning.” He means it this time, or they will get a time out! He has such strong feelings about this that in lieu of apologizing, as Cherokee Nation leader Bill John Baker demanded, he is “encouraging both sides to act with respect.” Elizabeth Warren, when will you stop being so terrible and racist to Scott Brown, and start acting with respect?
“Senator Brown has spoken to his entire staff – including the individuals involved in this unacceptable behavior – and issued them their one and only warning that this type of conduct will not be tolerated,” Brown spokeswoman Alleigh Marre said in a statement. “As we enter the final stretch of this campaign, emotions are running high, and while Senator Brown can’t control everyone, he is encouraging both sides to act with respect. He regrets that members of his staff did not live up to the high standards that the people of Massachusetts expect and deserve.”
Of course, that’s a spokeswoman. The only thing Scott Brown has said on the matter to date remains:
“It is certainly something that I don’t condone. The real offense is that (Warren) said she was white and then checked the box saying she is Native American, and then she changed her profile in the law directory once she made her tenure.”
