Boston Globe: Senator Scott Brown branded ‘Tea Party Patriarch’ by liberal group

On October 28, 2011, the Boston Globe reported:

“A day after a Republican video mocked Democratic US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren as the “Matriarch of Mayhem” for claiming significant credit for the Occupy Wall Street movement, a Democratic leaning political action committee has released “Scott Brown: Tea Party Patriarch.”

The video is being released by American Bridge 21st Century. It’s president, Rodell Mollineau, said in a statement that the video is “a warning that unfair, inflammatory, and inaccurate attacks will not go unanswered.”
