Sen Scott (Cosmo) Brown Loses Boston Boxing Legends Endorsement Over Anti-Gay Rights Stand

Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) has lost the endorsement of Boston Boxing legend Micky Ward, the subject of the 2010 biopic The Fighter after Ward learned that Brown opposes LGBT rights and labor unions.

The Lowell Sun reported Friday that Ward initially told the paper day that he was set to endorse Scott Brown’s re-election, but changed his mind shortly after:

Roughly a half-hour after Ward confirmed he was backing Brown, ‘The Fighter’ called back. He said he had given his endorsement a little more thought. “I can’t support Scott Brown,” Ward said. “I just can’t do it.”

Within 30 minutes, Ward either did some Googling or someone close to him reminded him about where Brown stood on some hot-button political topics. “I found out Scott (Brown) is anti-union and I’m a Teamster guy,” said Ward. “I found out he’s also against gay marriage and I say if you love someone you should have the same rights no matter who you are

Brown has been bragging about Wards endorsement for weeks before the hometown boxing legend gave Brown the ole one – two punch.

Talk about “rope a dope”. LOL!
