Beefcake Brown

Earlier this week I commented on the March 2 special election for State Senate between Democrat Angus McQuilken and Republican Scott Brown (McQuilken is endorsed in today's Globe). Now Ben from Romney is a Fraud has made a great discovery of Brown's past life as a self-absorbed model (see the posts for today and yesterday).

The campaign strangely enough issued a press release Tuesday about McQuilken entitled "Where's the Beef?" Brown doesn't exactly leave much to the imagination in some of his photos--perhaps he wants McQuilken to do the same? Ben also asks, "Why does Brown keep telling everyone he meets that he's against gay marriage? Who is he trying to convince?" I'm not linking directly to the photos here; click the RiaF link to find them, as well as some great Brown quotes from a 1982 Globe article. Supposedly Brown did some ads for Jordache back in the day, and Ben has asked for email leads.

The Scott Brown web site is flashy and pictures the state rep with Mitt Romney. Like Romney, Brown has a ridiculously telegenic family (including a wife who is a local TV reporter), though his modeling highlights must not have made the cut for this photo album.
