Elizabeth Warren with supporters.
This rationale for Scott Brown as a woman-friendly candidate is just nausea-inducing
At his event, Brown was bolstered by the former mayor of Lowell, Rita Mercier, who pointed to Brown’s wife and daughters as evidence of his support for women, calling them “three adorable good woman that are strong and vibrant and independent. You don’t get that way unless you have a strong man that allowed you to blossom.”
The only evidence Brown and his surrogates have ever been able to provide that Brown is pro-woman is his "house full of women." But Elizabeth Warren, as usual, lays out that lie:
Meanwhile, Warren held her own rally in Northampton, packing a gymnasium in the Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School, where she said she would overturn the Defense of Marriage Act and targeted Brown’s record on women’s rights.
“Scott Brown had one chance to vote for equal pay for equal work,’’ Warren told the crowd. “He had one chance to vote for insurance coverage for birth control and he had one chance to vote for a prochoice woman to the United States Supreme Court. He voted no, he voted no, and he voted no. Let me make this clear: I want to go to Washington to stand up for women.”
Elizabeth Warren didn't need any man to "allow" her to blossom. None of us do. And we need a strong woman in the Senate who will really work for us.
