Scott Brown bankrolling black voter group to support him and paying them $8 an hour

The Republican Party in Massachusetts has found a way to get black voters to campaign for Sen. Scott Brown — pay them $8 an hour.
The state GOP’s MassVictory program is funding a group called “Obama Supporters for Brown” to campaign for Brown in an inner city Boston neighborhood that strongly backs his Democratic challenger, Elizabeth Warren.
And that report comes courtesy of the conservative Boston Herald, not the liberal Boston Globe.
Benjamin Thompson, a black former city elections commissioner, told The Herald he pays about 20 campaign workers a per diem that “works out to” about $8 an hour.
At least four of the 20 or so volunteers are homeless, Thompson admitted.

I know Scott Brown is desperate and all, but holy hell … if his most recent debate against Elizabeth Warren (in which he got mopped) didn’t already dispel his “moderate” and “nice guy” images, this certainly does.
