Scott Brown Punks the Tea Party
It’s now beyond any doubt that Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown played the Tea Party like a cheap Stratocaster knock-off.
Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown today voiced his support for a stand-alone repeal of the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, bringing the bill one vote over the 60-vote threshold that it will need to reach if and when the Senate votes on the measure in the coming weeks.
“Sen. Brown accepts the Pentagon’s recommendation to repeal the policy after proper preparations have been completed. If and when a�clean repeal bill comes up for a vote, he will support it,” said Brown spokesperson Gail Gitcho.
This is great news for anyone who thinks the government shouldn’t be in the business of forcing people to lie about who they are.
