Brown Campaign To Pay Up For Violation Of Outside Ad Pledge

BOSTON (CBS) – Scott Brown’s campaign acknowledged Tuesday that a third-party group recently ran online ads in support of the Senator, a violation of a pledge made with his opponent Elizabeth Warren earlier this year.

Back on Jan. 23, Brown and Warren signed the People’s Pledge, which is an agreement to block outside, third-party advertising in the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts.

On Tuesday, Brown’s campaign said they contacted a group called CAPE PAC, who was running Google ads in support of Brown.

As a result, Brown’s campaign will now make a donation to the charity of Warren’s choice.

There has been no formal comment from the Warren campaign.
