Brown OUT

It's all over for Brown.

Of course, some folks advise bloggers to not steal stories from guys like Ace, since everyone reads him already.

But the problem is I'M BANNED FROM ACE'S site. Did I write something bad? Did I upset Ace's delicate sensibilities? No. My IP merely continually gets banned for no reason. I've bored of writing Ace and asking if it could be cleared up, because that only lasts a few weeks until it gets banned again. So, I can't go and play in all the fun. So, there you have it.

Anyway. Here's the details:

The Coakley campaign just sent out a press release pushing this HuffPo hit piece on Scott Brown. They’ve dug up some real dirt on this supposedly “regular guy” candidate. Did you know he “owns five properties”?

Brown owns three rental units in the college neighborhood of Brighton, and the Coakley campaign is trumpeting the fact that “Brown's 2008 SFI reports . . . a net income derived from [one of these units] of $1,001 to $5,000.” Obviously, Brown doesn’t need some crummy senate job with an income like that!

Then there’s this stunner: Scott Brown, who pretends to be a modest, typical Massachusetts resident, owns a time share in Aruba. That’s right: A time share. The Coakley e-mail reports the value of this Aruban paradise as “valued at $10,001 to $20,000.”

Well, after such a revelations ... I await Brown's press conference announcing his withdrawal.
