Daddy's Little Pitbull… American Idol Star Ayla Brown Comes Out Swinging For Dad Scott Brown (Video)
The Boston Globe reported today that Martha Coakley ads attacking Scott Brown are running back to back in Massachusetts. The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is one group that dumped $685,000 into the Coakley coffers this week to help her snuff out the Brown surge.
But, don’t think these dishonest Coakley ads went unnoticed in the Brown household.
American Idol star Ayla Brown and her sister Arianna released this radio ad yesterday to counter Coakley’s bogus charges against their dad:
Ayla and Arianna Brown, daughters of U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown, decry the out of line and false political attacks being pushed by Martha Coakley and her political machine.
And here is Ayla and Arianna holding a press conference for their dad… Ayla demands that Coakley take down her negative ad.
This is a great video:
Ayla Brown spoke with the Boston Herald yesterday about Coakley’s latest attack ad.
“American Idol” starlet Ayla Brown morphed into campaign pit bull yesterday for GOP dad Sen. Scott Brown as she tore into Democrat Attorney General Martha Coakley for plunging the U.S. Senate race into the gutter.
“Martha Coakley’s new negative ad represents everything that discourages young women from getting involved in politics, and as a young woman, I’m completely offended by that,” said the 21-year-old Brown. “She even spelled Massachusetts wrong in her original ad which is very embarrassing, I must say as a young woman.”
The former Idol contender and Boston College senior sought to further boost her father onto the national political stage as the race intensified amid polls showing it tightening.
“This past campaign season I’ve really seen him evolve,” Brown told the Herald. “I think he has an incredible shot at winning if they just get out there and vote.”
The singer, who belted out “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” during her “American Idol” audition, slammed Coakley for striking a sour note in a new television ad that she said misrepresents her father on the issues.
The spot shows images of a distraught woman at the bottom of a stairwell as a voiceover details a legislative amendment filed by Brown that would have allowed some facilities to deny emergency contraception to rape victims.
“Her attack on my dad is completely inaccurate and misleading,” Brown said as she defended her doting dad. “I’m here today to say that Martha Coakley should take down her negative ad.”
…Ayla broke her silence on the campaign trail in the last stretch of the heated battle to fill the late U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s seat. But Brown, standing next to her 19-year-old sister Arianna, said she wasn’t “dragged into the campaign.”
“We are very willing to play a part in my dad’s campaign,” Brown said.
That a girl.
By the way… Here’s Ayla Brown singing the Star Spangled Banner with the Boston Pops– Terrific!
