BOSTON - The Brown campaign today launched the latest Scott Brown Radio Report, called “Stolen Valor.” This radio report comes as Senator Brown renews a push this week on Capitol Hill to pass his version of the Stolen Valor Act that addresses the concerns of the Supreme Court, which recently overturned similar legislation. The statewide radio ad will begin running today.
In the ad, Brown denounces “con artists who claim for themselves distinctions and awards they don’t deserve,” and says we need to protect the honor of the brave men and women who serve in the United States military.
As a Lieutenant Colonel in the National Guard, Senator Brown feels strongly about defending the sacrifices made by those who protect American freedom around the world.

Script for Scott Brown Radio Report: ”Stolen Valor” (Radio :60)
ANNOUNCER: “Here is Scott Brown, with a Scott Brown Radio Report.”
U.S. SENATOR SCOTT BROWN: “Hello, this is Scott Brown. The Supreme Court recently struck down a law that made it a crime to misrepresent your military service. The Court said, lying about medals and military service is protected by the First Amendment.
“Maybe so, but it’s still cowardly and wrong. Con artists who claim for themselves distinctions and awards they don’t deserve should be held accountable. As a Lieutenant Colonel in the National Guard, I feel strongly about protecting the honor of our military men and women.
“That’s why I am working on a new law that will punish military liars and cheats in a way that satisfies the Court’s concerns. No one should be able to pose as someone they’re not to get benefits they don’t deserve. And no one should steal the valor of true heroes who fight to defend our freedoms around the world.”
