Strange Purple for Brown Sightings in Massachusetts

Fleming and Hayes have a stunning video of a report by a handicapped SEIU worker who was denied access to the Clinton/Coakley event.  Was it the handicap or was the handicap the fact he actually supported Brown?

Read the rest at Fleming and Hayes who have plenty of photos of some brave SEIU workers who support Brown and are angry at their union for selling them out. They also have video of Clinton leaving the event to chants of , "Thanks for stopping by, Bill, how about you go help Haiti now?" Also, be sure to see the video of a foreign Coakley supporter being taken into custody. What's up with that?

The Other McCain has also witnessed the surprising Purple for Brown phenomenon:
Among the Brown supporters were - believe it or not - rank-and-file members of the Service Employees International Union.

"We're Americans - we have our free choice," said one of the SEIU members, who identified herself only as Michelle and said she drove more than 60 miles from Western Massachusetts - "The stepchild of this state" - to show her support for Brown in Worcester.
 Legal Insurrection is posting photos from the ground in Massachusetts today.  He has a couple of those strange Purple for Brown sightings as well.  Perhaps there is a bit of mutiny among the Cavalry?

Still, the SEIU is all about power and will drop a shower of purple rain in the form of cash on the Coakley campaign.  The GOP is paying attention, a fact which seems to irk the SEIU:
"Here's more proof the Republican attack machine has no answers on the issues Massachusetts voters care about -- jobs, healthcare and fixing the mess left by the previous administration," shot back Jon Youngdahl, SEIU's national political director. "Their biggest concern? That people who work hard for a living might turn out and vote."
No really, our biggest concern is that the people who work *do* come out to vote.  It's becoming increasingly clear, Scott Brown is winning among the people who work for a living.
