Scott Brown Accused of Harassment in 1998

Could this have helped Martha Coakley’s foundering campaign in January? In 1998, Senator Scott Brown was accused of harassment by a woman who had worked on his campaign for state representative. According to the paperwork from the civil defamation lawsuit, Jennifer Firth said Brown harassed her and then sent forged letters and emails around town claiming that she “had made sexual advances” toward him and that the two had an “intimate relationship.” However, just two days after the filing, Firth’s lawyer said her allegations were not supported by “good grounds,” and she withdrew the suit a day later.
