Scott Brown, hypocrite:
Senator Scott Brown today took on a possible opponent in a special election to succeed his colleague John F. Kerry, questioning whether US Representative Edward J. Markey is actually a resident of Massachusetts....Omigod! The good people of Massachusetts can't possibly elect a senator who maintains two residences! Or whose wife works in D.C.! Can they?
"I'll tell you what; They're making it awfully tempting. You got Ed Markey: Does he even live here any more?" Brown said with a laugh as he called into the "Jim & Margery Show" on WTKK-FM.
"You've got to check the travel records. I've come back and forth (from Washington to Boston) every weekend, almost, for three years, and I see, you know, most of the delegation, and I have never seen Ed on the airplane -- ever," Brown added.
Markey, a Democrat born and raised in Malden, long called his childhood bedroom in his parents' house as his Massachusetts residence, even though his wife is a doctor at the National Institutes of Health in suburban Washington and the couple owns a home in Chevy Chase, Md.
Following the death of Markey's father in 2000, the congressman bought his family house and continues to maintain it as his voting address, an aide said last week....
Oh well -- at least Brown isn't attacking Markey on genealogy -- yet.
