… and rakes in the dough! The improbably handsome Scott Brown gave up his nude modelling career and turned to the less strenuous and considerably more profitable business of politics. It didn’t take long for the buff Mr. Brown to cash in on his new role as Senator from Massachusetts. As reported in the Boston Globe, this past summer Senator Brown took in some $140,000 in contributions from banking and investment firms and their executives, and:
“As the money poured in, Brown and his Senate staff were working both publicly and behind the scenes to scuttle $19 billion in fees on the financial industry that would have paid for part of the regulatory overhaul, and to weaken a provision intended to curb certain types of investment activities by banks and insurance companies.”
Instead the tax payers are paying the costs of the enfeebled financial industry regulation overhaul.
