After the report of this donation ran on Daily Kos, Politico asked Brown about it, prompting the Brown campaign to immediately donate the same amount as the Williams donation, $1,000, to Jane Doe Inc., a group that works against domestic violence and sexual assault, with a Brown spokesperson saying, “Mr. Williams’ comments were deplorable and we are donating his contribution to Jane Doe Inc."
But why wasn't Mr. Williams statement, which he made well before he made his donation to Brown's 2010 campaign, so deplorable that Brown didn't refuse his money the first time around? And there's also a question of timing. Check out OpenSecrets' record of the donation again.
The suspect timing of the Williams' donation aside, there's still the issue of where Brown is investing his PAC's money.
You won't be shocked to find out it's gone to a bunch of current Senate candidates. He gave $5,000 to Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), $10,000 to Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT) and $5,000 Rep. Rick Berg (R-ND).Brown really doesn't like answering questions about his tenure as senator. He doesn't think his votes should be an issue in the campaign, and he sure hasn't been answering any questions about his support for Paul Ryan as vice president or any of these Senate candidates who would ban abortion in all cases.
You probably also won't be surprised to find out all of these representatives were cosponsors of the infamous HR 3, the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act." You know that one, the one that says there's only really one kind of rape, "forcible" rape, and you can't get an abortion unless you can prove that you were the victim of rape-rape, not one of those other kinds of rape that you might have really enjoyed.
He likes to call himself the "independent," but if he's independent, why is he working so hard to win the Senate for Republicans?
