Mass. Dems file complaint against GOP Sen. Brown
Question of the Day
BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts Democratic Party has filed a complaint with the U.S. Senate Ethics Committee alleging Republican Sen. Scott Brown has failed to disclose his legal clients, as required by law.
The complaint filed Wednesday points to Brown's state and federal financial reports showing he earned at least $140,000 from his law practice between January 2007 and October 2009.
On a 2009 Senate financial disclosure form, Brown checked the box "no" when asked if he'd received compensation of more than $5,000 from a single source during that period.
Brown won't release a full client list, but said he worked as a title agent for Fidelity National and First American and with smaller mortgage companies and banks.
Democrats say it's "plainly impossible" none of his small list of clients paid Brown more than $5,000.
"These rules are designed to ensure that public officials cannot hide information about possible conflicts of interest from voters, as Senator Brown has done," said Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh.
Brown's campaign said the financial disclosure form was prepared in consultation with the Senate Ethics Committee and is "accurate, complete and in full compliance with all rules and requirements."
"Elizabeth Warren and her allies are wasting taxpayer money with this frivolous and baseless complaint," said Brown spokeswoman Alleigh Marre.
Warren's campaign has released a list of more than a dozen cases she helped argue before the federal court system going as far back as 1995, but has not released a full list of other cases she has consulted on.
Brown said he won't release his full client list until Warren releases her full client list first.
