Scott Brown Stalkers In Action

Martha Coakley was greeted by plenty of Scott Brown “stalkers” at events in Gloucester and Newburyport today.  I was at both events.  It is difficult to put into words the enthusiasm I witnessed today.  The last time I can remember seeing anything like this was when the Red Sox won the World Series and people everywhere were fired up and wanted to express their excitement.

Gloucester Chamber of Commerce – 1:30 p.m.

There is only one way to get to Chamber which includes passing through a four-way intersection.  There were Coakley supporters there, but they were outnumbered by the Brown Stalkers.  At the Chamber, Coakley had to walk through a crowd of  the aforementioned stalkers holding Brown signs, waving American flags and chanting “GO SCOTT BROWN.”   She looked a tad rattled.  When the event ended, Coakley left in her tinted window sedan to the same chants and crowds. 

Coakely had to pass these people on her way to the event

Coakley leaving – real woman of the people.

 

Michael’s Harborside Restaurant – Newburyport, 3:30 p.m.

My camera was acting funny here so I only got a few shots.  The restaurant is on the harbor with a bridge looking down on it.  Sea of Brown supporters on the bridge and at the entrance to the restaurant (where there were many empty parking spaces).  The entrance is next to another intersection. Brown folks on all corners, honking, yelling, thumbs up in the hundreds.  No Coakley sign holders to be found.  Again, Coakley drove in, addressed the “crowd” inside and left without getting out to shake hands…in the cold.

These young ladies were so offended by Coakley’s negative campaign they made their own signs and joined their mom (pictured above on the right)

More to come if I can get this camera working again.

update:  special thanks to the young Patriots who were canvasing Beverly Farms today and gave my husband a Scott Brown t-shirt!  I will be wearing it with pride to the rally in Worcester tomorrow.  You guys rock!

D’oh! Coakley Hubby’s Former Police Union Endorses Brown

The cherry on top of the sundae?  It’s the Cambridge Police.  You know, the ones who acted “stupidly” according to Obama? 

Legal Insurrection notes that Coakley’s campaign has frequently trumpted her husband’s status as a retired Cambridge police officer which makes this extra delicious.

The Cambridge, Massachusetts police officers association wants to clear up the record. Just because Martha Coakley’s husband is a retired Cambridge police officer, a fact which her campaign frequently mentions, they do not want you to think that they actually support Coakley.

No, the Cambridge police officers association, at the insistence of its membership, has endorsed Scott Brown for Senate (emphasis mine):

Members of our Association have inquired and requested that we endorse Scott Brown in the upcoming election against Martha Coakley.

Ms. Coakley along with some of her campaign workers have talked publicly about how her husband is a retired Cambridge Police Officer, giving appearances that she is being endorsed by the Cambridge Police. This may be an innocent insinuation but most do take this as our giving her our support and endorsement.

Yesterday, the CPPOA Executive Board voted to endorse State Senator Scott Brown in the upcoming election for US Senate. In an 11 to 2 vote, the Executive Board voted overwhelmingly in favor of the endorsement.

We do not endorse anyone who advocates changes in the health care that take away any bargaining rights or increases our cost along with our contributions. Senator Brown does not support the Comprehensive Healthcare Reform Bill and promises to be the 41st vote to ensure its defeat. The current leadership at the state house, as we all know and have seen over the past two years, have an agenda to dismantle all of our hard earned bargained benefits and they will continue to dismantle these until there is a complete change from the top down. Martha Coakley is part of this Massachusetts leadership and she will continue with this agenda, only now it will be at the capital level and we need to stop it.

So today, we the members of the Cambridge Police Patrol Officers Association endorse Scott Brown for the senate seat vacated by Senator Kennedy.

Sgt. James Crowley has to smiling to himself right now.
