Senator Scott Brown, you should be ashamed of yourself. Yesterday afternoon while driving home from work I heard this radio ad below on WRKO. It is Scott Brown reaffirming his support for Republican congressional candidate, Jeff Perry. Yes, the same Jeff Perry that did nothing while a fourteen year old girl was assaulted by another police officer.
Voice of Scott Brown: (click here for audio)
This is United States Senator Scott Brown with a message for the people of the 10th Congressional District. You have another chance to shake up the status quo in Washington on Tuesday, November 2nd by electing Jeff Perry as your next congressman.
We need Jeff working in Congress to cut out wasteful spending and get going on a jobs program that will turn our economy around.
Sadly, Jeff’s opponent in this race, Bill Keating, has decided to focus almost entirely on negative attacks concerning an incident that took place almost two decades ago and which didn’t directly involve Jeff.
These are the same ugly tactics that were used against me in my campaign for the United States Senate. You saw through those attacks then, and I hope you’ll do the same now.
Jeff is a decent and honorable person and I would be proud to have him join me in bringing common sense back to Washington.
This is Senator Scott Brown. Get out on Tuesday, November 2nd and send a powerful message. Send Jeff Perry to the United States Congress.
So Scott, you think it (the strip search) didn’t directly involve Jeff Perry? Well, Here are the actually words of the victim:
It upsets me that Jeff Perry can run for Congress after what he did to me when I was fourteen years old…Jeff Perry was nearby when Scott Flanagan illegally strip searched me. Perry knew what Flanagan did, he had to hear me screaming and crying. Instead of helping me, Jeff Perry denied anything happened. Even after Scott Flanagan admitted the truth under oath and pled guilty, Perry never apologized for allowing Flanagan to abuse me. Now he has said he would not do anything differently if he had the chance.
And Scott, you also think “Jeff Perry is a decent and honorable person”…I wonder if the victims parents would agree with you. Former Republican candidate for governor, Christy Mihos has this one right on…”no self-respecting parent of a daughter would vote for Perry”.
Scott, this is not a Republican issue or a Democratic issue, this is an issue of right and wrong.
