US Sen. Scott Brown delivers $34,545 check under ad deal

April 3, 2012

BOSTON – Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown has delivered a $34,545 check to the Autism Consortium in Boston as part of a deal to discourage third-party ads in the Senate race.

The check is half the money spent by the oil and gas industry’s main lobbying group on ads urging voters to call Brown and ask him to reject legislation they said would raise taxes on energy producers.

On Thursday Brown voted against a Senate measure opposed by the industry that would have ended $4 billion in tax subsidies to oil companies.

Under the deal with his chief Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren, the candidate who benefits from an ad must write a check for half the cost of the ad to a charity named by the other candidate.

It’s the second check Brown has written.
