Rachel Maddow to Scott Brown: ‘You Need to Stop Lying’
March 31, 2010
(ChattahBox)—-MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has reached the end of her rope with Sen. Scott Brown’s (R-MA) tall tales about her running for the U.S. Senate against the former nude Cosmo model. The freshman Senator, sent out a fundraising letter to out of state supporters begging for cash to help him fight off the threat to America posed by Maddow’s “far-left agenda.” Maddow debunked the rumors of a senate run on her nightly program multiples times, while her staff’s calls to Brown’s office went unanswered. Finally, Maddow took the extreme step of taking out a full-page ad in the Boston Globe condemning Brown for his “made-up threat of me running against him, to try to scare donors into giving him more money.”
Well, one would think that from either shame or humiliation in being caught in a blatant falsehood to shill for campaign cash, Brown would have ended his charade and moved on to another fundraising bogeyman. But you would be wrong. So, in a final act of desperation Maddow, on her show Tuesday night, pleaded with Brown to stop lying.
“I thought this was weird, said Maddow, but at least I thought this was finally over.” But, come to find out, when asked about the controversy with Maddow, Brown responded that her denial was an attempt “to boost her ratings.” Maddow again, told the world that she was not running for the U.S. Senate against Brown, and called him a liar more than once.
“You shouldn’t get to flat-out lie in the conduct of your business as a United States Senator and get away with it,” Maddow said. [...]
“Senator Brown, you need to stop lying about this.”
