Republican Senator Scott Brown is losing in the polls to Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, and when politicians fall behind, they get desperate. Senator Brown is demonstrating his desperation by paying black people, many of them homeless, to wear ‘Obama supporters for Brown’ t-shirts.
The Republican Party in Massachusetts is bankrolling an effort to get more black voters on their team by paying them $8 an hour to sport Scott Brown t-shirts. The organizer of Obama Supporters for Brown, Benjamin Thompson, admitted to the Boston Herald that he paid homeless people to show up at a rally wearing the t-shirts. Thompson, however, maintains that the people who showed up were supportive of Brown’s campaign and that the monies paid were just to cover the cost of transportation.
