Brown Accused of Harassment in 1998

Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) was accused of harassing a female campaign worker in 1998, Gawker reports.

Jennifer Firth "filed a civil defamation suit against Brown in July of 2000, alleging that he had harassed her when she worked on his campaign in 1998, and then tried to smear her reputation around town with forged letters and emails."

According to the complaint, Brown engaged in "offensive" conduct that caused Firth to quit his campaign; he then tried to "defame and humiliate" her by spreading rumors to her colleagues that she "had made sexual advances" towards him during his campaign.

Later, Firth withdrew her suit after her lawyer filed a motion to withdraw as her counsel.
