As poll after poll shows bold progressive Elizabeth Warren leading Scott Brown (R) in the Massachusetts Senate race, he is growing increasingly desperate to distract voters from his pro-corporate record.
He’s attacking Warren for having a small consulting role to Dow Chemical back in 1995. He claims this shows that she’s not on the side of ordinary people.
But if Dow Chemical is so toxic (no pun intended) then why is Brown happy to engage in fundraising with the corporation?
Brown has taken $6,000 from the company’s Political Action Committee (PAC) in the current election cycle. He took $1,000 when he was running in 2010. Warren hasn’t gotten a dime from the company’s PAC.
Corporations don’t just like to give away free money. Dow is likely rewarding Brown for his 2011 vote to bar the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases, an issue Dow intensely lobbied on the same year. In fact, he got a $1,000 check from the PAC the month after the vote.
They say those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. It seems like Brown just threw a boulder.

Dow Chemical is another evil corporation because not only does it lobby against controlling air, water and earth pollution but it also wants to manufacture herbicides/pesticides more toxic than Roundup and market these freely around the globe. It is also working on GMOs like Monsanto to infiltrate our food and was instrumental in developing Agent Orange of Vietnam War fame. Therefore, people like Scott Brown who vote Dow’s line and accept money for it are really tainted.
What would anyone expect but big, greedy, uncaring business to bankroll their favorite FLUNKY? Dow Chemical is just like all Wall St. and big businesses everywhere– THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR!!!!! They DON”T CARE ABOUT AMERICA, THE PEOPLE ON THIS PLANET, THE ENVIORNMENT AND THEY DON”T WANT ANY RESPONSIBILTY OR ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS!!!!! Wall St. and big businesses everywhere WANT TO MAKE EVERY PERSON WORLDWIDE THEIR SLAVES!!!!
