Brown's campaign has previously called for her to "come clean" on why she listed herself in minority directories at universities where she taught. But before Tuesday, Brown himself had taken a less aggressive stance on whether Warren used minority status to boost her career. "I know the media has been asking a lot of questions, and I've been following it just like you have," Brown told reporters
last week. "So, if there are questions, you know, she should answer them."
"At the exact same moment that Scott Brown was voting with his fellow Republicans to block low interest college loans for Massachusetts students, Brown shamelessly resorts to tired personal attacks aimed to distract voters," said Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesperson Matt Canter
in a statement. "Brown's latest bait-and-switch illustrates just how personally desperate he is to avoid the real issues in this race - like making college more affordable, protecting Medicare, holding Wall Street accountable - because on the issues that matter most to voters Scott Brown sides with Republicans and special interests and against the middle class."
Brown's new posture will certainly serve to keep this controversy going.
