Scott Brown cooked this up because he knew he could not defeat her when it came to actually doing the job.
So he had to go negative. The problem was he had nothing to negative with.
So he just made stuff up. Knowing that Conservative hate affirm. action he thought this would blind the voters to who was the best for the job.
It turns out the voters didn't care then. And despite the Donald's jumping on to the smear train.... The voters still don't care.
