Scott Brown and his ties to the mortgage industry is coming up a lot these days. It seems like everyone wants to tie him to the crisis – and with good reason. As an attorney he had an obligation to work in the best interest of his client – it’s a reach for many attorneys to follow that simple creed, but shouldn’t be for a guy running for elected office, particularly if that guy is going to question his opponents character.
Scott Brown claims that he did legal work and was in court rooms doing legal stuff. Not exactly what a real estate attorney does and not exactly what he did. Closings, shuffling papers, and making a lot of mistakes is more along the lines of what brown did.
