U.S. Senate Candidates Filing Complaints

BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts Democratic Party has filed a complaint charging Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown with illegally coordinating with a group affiliated with GOP strategist Karl Rove on automated telephone calls targeting Democrat Elizabeth Warren.

The Massachusetts Republican Party responded hours later by preparing its own complaint with the Federal Election Commission charging Warren with illegally coordinating with the AFL-CIO on anti-Brown mailings.

The competing claims come as Brown releases a new ad alleging Warren “got caught in a lie” and “needs to come clean” about her Native American heritage, implying she used it to help get a job as a law professor at Harvard.

Warren has said she was told growing up that her mother had Native American heritage, but denied it played any role in her offer of a job at Harvard Law School.
