letters | FLAP OVER VOTER REGISTRATION IN SENATE RACE

Scott Brown shows his true GOP colors

It’s refreshing when that great bipartisan, Senator Scott Brown, shows his true Republican colors, as when he exploded upon learning that the Department of Transitional Assistance is helping citizens in contact with that agency to exercise their right to vote (“Brown rips voter registration effort: Sees political motive in welfare mailing; state says it was part of settlement,” Page A1, Aug. 9).

Some Republicans couch their vote-suppression activity in the guise of preventing fraud, but give Brown credit for honesty: He’s outraged because poor people are more likely to vote Democratic.
