I like him.

Uhm... Since many in the SEIU seems to be on board with Brown, won’t this create some friction?

Just curious.

Cheers

I don't know how "many" there are but there are always a few free thinkers in all the unions. I was a union member once and pretty much ignored political crap the union fed us.

I'd suspect it would endear him more with the rank and file who probably don't appreciate the Union bosses telling them how to vote...

Uhhh? Isn't Coakley the Attorney General? How convenient!

There is something very phony about these rank and file SEIU members in their purple shirts supporting Brown.
For a reason(s) I don’t know, I believe this is a put up job by the SEIU leadership that is supporting Cloakly.

Go Scott Go!!!!!! First time I have logged into FR since Obama won as I have been disgusted w/ politics but this race has me so energized and want to see Scott win! I live in MA and not only will I be voting for Brown but so will my son and his girl friend. Not used to the state of Massachusetts being a political hot spot and it is indeed empowering to know that on Tuesday my vote will finally count for something!

Glad to see he is not going to let the Dems get away w/ their usual dirty tricks!

I don’t think there’d be much friction among SEIU members. The smart American ones have turned against the Marxist ones. When it’s a matter of there being no bread on the table, it’s less about the union membership and more about survival.

Me, too. I see it as a means to immunize the SEIU following their antics in the coming days.

I don’t know... they risk a lot if they’re doing that. The pics might give ‘demonstration effect’ for union members (not only SEIU members) who are on the fence. The SEIU leaderships are clearly for the Dhim.

I want all Republican candidates to take note: this is how you fight and WIN against Dems. For too long, the Dems got away with cheating their way to victory because the GOP was too afraid to call them out on it.

Brown has exposed the ugly manner in which the Dems operate and if more Republicans do this, the Dem party can eventually be whittled down to becoming insignificant.

Win or lose this race will send a very chilling message to every Democrat who heretofore believed they were in a “safe” seat. if they are still dumb enough to vote for this reckless Obamacare then they should expect to find other employment soon.

Win or lose Coakley and the Obama administration have already lost what should not have been a remotely close contest in a very heavy Democratic state.

Oh My! It involves the SEIU!!!
This Breaking News—–
FOX News Boston reported:

BOSTON – Republican Senate hopeful Scott Brown has filed a complaint with the State Ethics Commission after a report that a union backing rival Martha Coakley used state resources to urge workers to volunteer for Coakley’s campaign.

The report by FOX25 said the Service Employees International Union used state computers and e-mail addresses to direct state employees to volunteer for Coakley, the Democratic state attorney general.

Coakley’s campaign referred questions to the attorney general’s office. A spokeswoman said the attorney general’s office has received the letter from Brown’s attorney and will review it before commenting.

The SEIU did not immediately return a call for comment.

The support he received last week shocked the Dems. They were in no-way prepared. Now Zero will lend his empty suit tomorrow. The tidal wave will tune him out. Ketchup boy and BJ cannot do anything now. The voters have decided that socialism is killing their state.
