NHDP - ICYMI: Brown Not Truthful About New Hampshire Roots

Key Point: “He says he was born at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard -- and yes, that is technically in Maine. He says his dad was an airman at Pease and his mother was a waitress at Hampton Beach. And he says that his family goes back nine generations in the state and he is even ‘a son of the American Revolution out of Newington.’
 
“But there isn't a Newington chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, there is just a statewide chapter. And Bob Walsh, the New Hampshire chapter president, says Brown isn't a member. Records show that Brown is a member of the Massachusetts chapter.”

Whenever Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown is asked about his New Hampshire roots he has a stock answer.
 
He says he was born at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard -- and yes, that is technically in Maine. He says his dad was an airman at Pease and his mother was a waitress at Hampton Beach. And he says that his family goes back nine generations in the state and he is even "a son of the American Revolution out of Newington."
 
But there isn't a Newington chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, there is just a statewide chapter. And Bob Walsh, the New Hampshire chapter president, says Brown isn't a member. Records show that Brown is a member of the Massachusetts chapter.

The Brown campaign said the Newington reference was where his family lived during the revolution.
