Scott Brown Slams Elizabeth Warren's Daughter For Using Taxpayer Money To Ferry Welfare Recipients In The Polls, To Help Her Mom

Note the "taxpayer money." Also note "ACORN."

A left-leaning research group that’s leading a national campaign to get welfare recipients to the voting booths is chaired by Democratic Senate contender Elizabeth Warren’s daughter — and is drawing immediate fire from incumbent GOP Sen. Scott Brown.

“I want every legal vote to count, but it’s outrageous to use taxpayer dollars to register welfare recipients as part of a special effort to boost one political party over another,” Brown said in a statement this morning. “This effort to sign up welfare recipients is being aided by Elizabeth Warren’s daughter and it’s clearly designed to benefit her mother’s political campaign. It means that I’m going to have to work that much harder to get out my pro-jobs, pro-free enterprise message.”

Demos, whose board is chaired by Amelia Warren Tyagi, successfully filed suit in May to force the Bay State to send out nearly 500,000 voter registration cards to welfare recipients. Their lawsuit, filed in conjunction with the ACORN offshoot New England United for Justice, comes as Warren faces a tight battle with Brown in a nationally watched battle that could decide which party controls the Senate.

Officials with the Warren campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Demos has filed similar suits in nine states, including Ohio, Pennsylvania, Nevada and Louisiana. The group was conceived in the late 1990s to counter conservative think tanks, and also counts President Obama as a founding board member.

Note: The excerpt I've provided is not the currently-published version of the article, which seems weaker and softer than the excerpt here. It seems like it was edited to be less interesting.

I got this as a tip, and what I've excerpted seems professionally-written and thus suggests it was, once, part of the article.

I don't really like the current article so I'm quoting this.
