Democrats pile on Scott Brown for Scalia remark

Democratic members of the US Senate complained today that Senator Scott Brown made a revealing comment about his commitment to women’s rights when the Massachusetts Republican named conservative Antonin Scalia first on his list of model Supreme Court justices.

Vermont Democrat Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told the Globe that he “fell straight out of my chair” when he heard the statement during Monday’s debate between Brown and his Democratic opponent, Elizabeth Warren.
