Pro-Outsourcing Chamber of Commerce, Massachusetts Republican Mitt Romney Go on NH Airwaves To Support Scott Brown
Brown’s Long Record of Support for Sending Jobs Overseas Grows as He Refuses To Resign From An Outsourcing Company That Paid Him More Than A Quarter Million Dollars
Manchester, NH –Scott Brown and his supporters are doubling down on his long record of supporting--and even working for--companies that send jobs overseas, along the way showing New Hampshire voters exactly why Brown is wrong for New Hampshire. This evening it was reported that the pro-outsourcing U.S. Chamber of Commerce is launching a new ad campaign to support Brown, featuring failed Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, whose Presidential campaign was largely defined by his record of supporting and financing companies who send American jobs overseas. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has a long and clear record of supporting Wall Street firms’ bottom lines at the expense of American jobs being sent to countries like China and Mexico.
“If there’s any question whether Scott Brown will continue supporting corporate special interests that send American jobs overseas, look no further than the people who have lined up to support his campaign,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Julie McClain. “Mitt Romney and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are the most famous outsourcers in the United States, and they know that if Scott Brown gets to the Senate, he’ll support the very same policies they do. That’s why they’re spending big money to support his campaign.”
This is not the first time Scott Brown has tried to claim that he was unaware of or disconnected from the operations of an outsourcing company that was lining his pockets. Brown was forced to resign in disgrace from his role as an advisor to a shady penny stock company GDSI, a former beauty supply company turned weapons manufacturer whose executives were sued for fraud.
Since losing his reelection campaign in Massachusetts, Scott Brown tried to cash in with that Florida-based company, and was set to collect more than a quarter of a million dollars in cash and stock from a company that outsourced American jobs until he was forced to resign under political pressure.
