In the wake of the PPP poll showing Elizabeth Warren leading Republican Senator (Douchebag) Scott Brown R-Koch, the Massachusetts Republican Party has tried a new approach. They must be scared shitless! From The Daily Kos:
MA-Sen: Ah, nothing like a scary poll to make the Mass. GOP start to sh*t itself. What a bunch of d-bags:The Massachusetts Republican Party is asking Harvard University to reconsider paying Elizabeth Warren a salary while the law school professor runs for US Senate. “By restoring her to the faculty, even though she has now formed a federal election committee and is actively campaigning, the university is establishing a bad precedent for academic appointments,” Nate Little, executive director of the GOP, wrote in a letter to Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust.
“Of equal concern is that Harvard runs the risk of jeopardizing its tax-exempt status. As a non-profit charitable institution, Harvard is prohibited from taking a position on behalf of or in opposition to a candidate. Your payment of a salary to Professor Warren causes reasonable-minded people to conclude that Harvard is supportive of her candidacy,” Little wrote.
I liked this deadpan zinger from the Globe's Glen Johnson, though:During the special election campaign, Brown continued to accept his taxpayer financed salary as a state senator. He also has not expressed any plans to give up his federal salary while running for reelection.
The way the Republicans treated Ms. Warren in Congressional hearings was atrocious. She has only tried to be the voice of working people in the US and they treated her like dirt. I hope she mops up the floor with that Scott Brown.
