Following the “CrazyKhazei” scandal in which one of Scott Brown’s right hand men was caught engaging in childish dirty campaigning, Scott Brown said:
US Senator Scott Brown said yesterday that he was unaware a top adviser was mocking a potential political rival under a false Twitter account, but Brown added that he has “made clear to everyone on or associated with my team that this type of thing is not to happen again.”
“…this type of thing is not to happen again.” Or else what? Well, we may find out. That report from the link was released on August 26, 2011. Given that Brown made those comments “yesterday” according to the report, Brown must have told Team Plagiarist on August 25, 2011, that “this type of thing is not to happen again.”
Well, bad news for Scott Brown and Team Plagiarist. This type of thing happened again – the very next day! The Globe reports:
Scott Brown’s campaign acknowledged tonight that one of its consultants, Rob Willington, had registered the domain name QueenElizabethWarren.com. The campaign has not put the website to use and would not say whether it planned to do so in the future or comment further on the matter.
Childish? Check. Dirty campaigning? Check. And, as the Globe mentions, the story was broken by Blue Mass Group:
David’s post about Scott Brown’s comments regarding “CrazyKhazei” (Scott Brown still playing the victim on CrazyKhazei) served as a reminder to go check if Scott Brown’s consultants had created anymore Mass Senate related websites. I did a search through my Whois.sc account, and it showed me that QueenElizabethWarren.com had been registered on August 26, 2011 through 1&1 Internet, Inc.
Registered on August 26, 2011. Hmmmm, engaging in childish dirty campaigning on August 26. But what was it again that Scott Brown said on August 25 to his Team Plagiarist staff? Oh, right:
Brown added that he has “made clear to everyone on or associated with my team that this type of thing is not to happen again.”
Well, it happened again. Rob Willington did it. So, now Scott Brown has to finish the sentence “This type of thing is not to happen again or else ________.” Is Scott Brown going to fire Rob Willington? Or will he find a way to sweep it under the rug and demonstrate a lack of principle when it comes to dirty campaigning on behalf of his Team Plagiarist? It’s been over a month. Anybody know if Rob Willington was given a pass by Scott Brown on his childish dirty campaigning?
