Could Smile at Rape Remark Doom GOP in MA Senate Race?

0

Voters in Massachusetts go to the polls in a special election Tuesday to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated when Ted Kennedy passed away last year. Although Democrats outnumber Republicans 3-to-1 in the state, the race is very tight between Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Scott Brown. But will a 9-second video prove to be the difference in the race?

One of the issues in the increasingly bitter and ugly campaign is a rape case involving a curling iron that Coakley, as attorney general, did not aggressively prosecute.

At a recent Brown rally, someone in the crowd shouted, "Shove a curling iron up HER butt." Brown seemed to smile and nod his approval.

Watch the video and see for yourself:

On Monday, a spokesman said Brown never heard the remark in question.

"He emphatically said he did not hear it," a campaign staffer said. "There was a large crowd," and he wasn't looking at anyone in particular.

President Obama campaigned on Sunday for Coakley in an effort to mobilize Democrats. Obama has a personal stake in this -- Brown promises to vote against health care reform if he's elected, and that could doom the entire bill.
