Scott Brown Cracking Down on War Whoops and Tomahawk Chops

Sen. Scott Brown reprimanded his staff for using stereotypical Native American “war whoops” and tomahawk chops to mock rival Elizabeth Warren, saying that is their “one and only warning” that such behavior won’t be tolerated.

“Senator Brown has spoken to his entire staff – including the individuals involved in this unacceptable behavior – and issued them their one and only warning that this type of conduct will not be tolerated,” Brown spokeswoman Alleigh Marre said in a statement. “As we enter the final stretch of this campaign, emotions are running high, and while Senator Brown can’t control everyone, he is encouraging both sides to act with respect. He regrets that members of his staff did not live up to the high standards that the people of Massachusetts expect and deserve.”
