BOSTON — Staffers for Sen. Scott Brown chanted Indian “war whoops” and made “tomahawk chops” during a rally for the Republican senator this week in Boston.
In a video posted on YouTube, Brown’s staffers are seen holding campaign signs near the Erie Pub, chanting and making tomahawk chops, presumably in reference to Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Cherokee heritage.
Constituent Service Counsel Jack Richard and GOP operative Brad Garrett are pictured in the video, NewsCenter 5’s Janet Wu confirmed.
Earlier this week, Brown launched a new television ad featuring clips of news reports on Warren’s Native American claims, for which she has been unable to provide any proof.
Warren then released an ad saying she was told as a child that her mother was part Cherokee and part Delaware Indian and that her parents had to elope because her father’s family wasn’t happy with her mother’s heritage.
