    Thats what i thought most of browns money came from outside mass, 70% in fact. There was just to much being spent for it have come from ma citizens alone. This means to me that his election wasn't the angry uprising that people portraited it to be.

    Out-of-state donations buoyed Brown in final campaign days - The Boston Globe

    In the last 19 days of the race, nearly 70 percent of the 12,773 contributors who gave more than $200 to the Brown campaign were from outside Massachusetts, a Globe review shows. By contrast, in the first 109 days of Brown’s candidacy, when he was still considered a dark horse, less than 8 percent of Brown’s 1,766 contributions of more than $200 were from out-of-staters.

    Money is one thing, votes are another. The fact that he got the votes to win, as a republican, in Massachusetts, for Ted Kennedy's old seat, would reinforce the notion of public anger. At least to me anyway. The public support, and grassroots campaign, were lead by the voters of Massachusetts. Clearly the money was from elsewhere mostly, but the support was local. IMO opinion anyway. Not that my opinion is worth much. :(

    You think that was bad - wait until the next elections when corporations are allowed to donate as much money as they want to advertizing for political candidates.

    Well an enormous amount of money was concentrated on one race in one place. I don't know if that could be done to the extent it was in Mass.....mam

    Brown would never have been elected in Massachusetts without the help of Obama and The Pelosi Gang, when a Left Wing Democrat state Like Massachusetts votes for "The Enemy" you know The People Are Mad and Disgusted, it makes no difference where the money came from, in the end it was the people, the angry people that gave Brown his victory, did he just sh!t on them, we'll see?

    Don't play it off like you have some great insight into 'the people' when you have no clue and never did. You and Real World have been so desperate to backtrack from all the Brown spit swapping you did during the election its not even funny. Your support for him was about cutting Obama's nuts off and that's it. It never had anything to do with Brown at all, and now that you've suddenly discovered he's not quite Nazi enough to suit your tastes you want to rewrite history.
