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?

From Politico:

“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.”

  • IceCreamEmpress

    Wharfargbl. It's like Scott Brown is taking away every white girl's right to claim that she's 1/16th Cherokee Princess and/or descended from Pocahontas!

    I love Warren, but I do think she was an idiot for relying on family lore to claim Native ancestry. That said, what else is she supposed to do other than what she's done about it? Build a time machine and go back to undo the claim?

    Scott Brown's other attack strategy, that she represented an asbestos company, got (or so I heard) sharp reprimands from the RNC folks because, hey, we're on the side of the asbestos companies, doofus!

    • sullivanst

      Given the context in which she claimed Native ancestry, it was not in any way inappropriate for her to do so on a genuinely held, if undocumented, belief at that time (the 80s and 90s). Demands for documentation are either ignorant of, or counting on the audience's ignorance of, the history of tribal enrollment vs. ancestry vs. eligibility for citizenship of the Federally recognized tribes, which is complex, to say the least. Just the fact that she's from Oklahoma should be enough to satisfy any reasonable person of the likelihood she has some Native blood.

      The asbestos stuff is just standard Rovian smears, with about as much honest representation of the facts as you'd expect (none at all). Brown's just another lying goober sleazeball.

      • IceCreamEmpress

        I love Warren! But her stories about this make no sense. It's not even a question of "documentation" (I am definitely aware that the Dawes Rolls and other Cherokee genealogical resources are very spotty, and that the process for awarding tribal affiliation is convoluted and hit-or-miss, unsurprisingly given the lack of resources both presently and historically)—she doesn't have specific ancestors whom she believes to have been Native, and her statements about it have been pretty nonsensical ("high cheekbones"? Really?)

        The people I knew at Harvard in the 1980s who self-identified as Native grew up on the rez and/or were active in tribal politics, and they were skeptical at best of people who claimed Native ancestry on the basis of family legend about unnamed ancestors.

    • IceCreamEmpress

      Scott Brown has a pickup truck and his daughter was on American Idol. Also, he's a dude.

      That gives him lots of traction outside of the metro Boston area. Elizabeth Warren is a lady and a Harvard professor and looks like that teacher who gave you a D- in seventh grade that one time. This gives her negative traction outside of the metro Boston area.

      I still think/hope Warren will win on Bammerz's coattails; everybody, even the Republicans in Massachusetts, hates Mittens and hopefully the Republicans will stay the fuck home.

    • SexySmurf

      It's because the Democratic Party (who suck at the same corporate tit as the Republicans) keep punching her in the boob.

    Their "one and only warning"? Who gets or gives warnings in situations like this? You'd presume that for the candidates, running a successful campaign is pretty damned important right? I'm thinking that in an analogous business situation there would be no "warning" but rather there would be Tump-like "you're fired, get out." Is it possible that by "warning" his staffers Brown is doing some very tricky, double-secret, dog-whistling?
