On Tuesday, video surfaced that could be potentially damaging to the campaign of Senator Scott Brown, who is currently locked in a tight race with challenger Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts. Brown has been hammering Warren for once claiming Cherokee ancestry, even though there is no evidence that she is. Warren claimed she had been told she was part Cherokee by her family. Brown's campaign has run an ad lambasting her for misrepresenting herself, and he also wasted no time in the first debate by mentioning it in his opening remarks.
The narrative on this is about to change to some degree, as staffers and supporters of Brown were caught on video participating in a Tomahawk Chop mocking Warren at a campaign rally on Tuesday:
According to WCVB in Boston, "Brown's Deputy Chief of Staff Greg Casey and Constituent Service Counsel Jack Richard, State Director Jerry McDermott, special assistant Jennifer Franks and GOP operative Brad Garrett are pictured in the video."
Whether this will prove to be a distraction for Brown remains to be seen. But what's clear at this point is that this is one of the ugliest races in country.
