9-14-09 Scott Brown letter to Gov. Deval Patrick Regarding Eligibility to Serve in U.S. Senate
Dear Governor Patrick:
It has come to my attention that an employee of the Executive Ofﬁce of Public Safety called the Adjutant General’s Ofﬁce at the Massachusetts National Guard to inquire whether my Guard service made me ineligible to run as a candidate for the U.S. Senate.
I am bringing this to your attention because it represents highly inappropriate partisan political conduct on the part of your administration. As you are the civilian commander of the National Guard, I know you agree with me on the importance of keeping politics from interfering with the Guard's mission of providing trained and disciplined forces essential to the safety and security of our state and nation.
Wow. Just wow. So, just to set the record straight, a STATE EMPLOYEE called the MA NG to inquire as to whether Brown was eligible to run for Senator. The assumption, of course, is that they were running interference for the Democratic challenger, whoever that turned out to be.
It's nice to see our state money put to such good use in these challenging economic times...
That is all.
