NEW: Warren Ads Go After Brown For Misleading Asbestos Attacks

Monday, October 08, 2012

 

Democratic hopeful Elizabeth Warren's campaign rolled out two new ads on Monday taking Republican Senator Scott Brown to task for his misleading attacks on the consumer advocate's legal work on a case involving asbestos victims.

The ads feature the family members of workers stricken with mesothelioma denouncing Brown's attempts to use the victims' suffering for political gain.

In "Ashamed," widow Ginny Jackson relates how her husband Sam died of mesothelioma in 1990 after being exposed to asbestos while working at a Quincy shipyard.

"Elizabeth Warren went all the way to the Supreme Court to try to get more money for asbestos victims and families," Jackson says in the ad.

"Now Scott Brown is attacking Elizabeth Warren about her work. Scott Brown is not telling the truth. He’s trying to use our suffering to help himself. He outta be ashamed."

The second ad, "Devastating," also features Jackson as well as John English and Stephen Yapp, who both lost their fathers to mesothelioma.

Brown has criticized Warren for representing Travelers Insurance in the asbestos case and for her work on a case involving LTV Steel in a dispute over whether the steel conglomerate would provide health benefits to retirees. In both cases, Brown has argued, Warren failed to defend the interests of workers, siding instead with the large corporations.

Warren has stood by her legal work, stating that she would do it again during the second Senate debate last week in Lowell.
