A few weeks back, an event took place at Faneuil Hall to celebrate the opening of a new visitor’s center.  There was a fancy ribbon cutting, with our Republican junior Senator, Scott Brown, front and center for the photo opportunity.

Unfortunately for Republican Scott Brown, his presence at the celebratory event and ribbon cutting ceremony reeked of hypocrisy.  Why?  Congressman Michael Capuano put it plainly:

US Representative Michael E. Capuano, clearly needling Brown, who was seated at his side, declared twice that the funding to renovate the hall came from the stimulus package and from an earmark.

As the crowd applauded the Somerville Democrat’s comments, Brown, who has been critical of earmarks and the stimulus program, sat quietly with his hands folded.
