Scott Brown defends stake in Florida company

Says he advises startup; rivals call for disclosure

“It’s a startup company that I’ve been on the board for, what seven, eight months, offering any type of advice when asked,” Brown said in a brief interview after a campaign event at a local gas station highlighting his energy plans.
