In the Massuchusetts special election for U.S. Senate, GOP nominee Scott Brown is trying to appeal to moderate voters by claiming that he doesn't know anything about the right-wing tea party movement.

But as this video shows, Brown not only knows about the tea party movement, but he's actually spoken at one of their rallies, the Worcester Tea Party event held on April 15, 2009.

According to TPM, Brown's own campaign has posted photos of him speaking at the Worcester Tea Party rally as well one of him at another tea party event. Salon's Mike Madden also discovered that Brown's campaign website featured a fundraiser thrown for him by tea partiers.

With just days left until the election, will Brown's naked ploy to appeal to moderate voters end up backfiring now that it's been exposed as a lie?
