Sherrod Campbell Brown, born November 9, 1952 (age 61), is a pro-abortion[1] Democratic Senator from Ohio. He was also a member of the House of Representatives (1993-2007), Ohio Secretary of State (1983-1991), and an Ohio State Representative (1974-1982). As a Senator, he came to congress in the 2006 anti-Bush wave of so-called "Conservative Democrats" with more than $3 million poured into his campaign from out of state. [2] Brown is a member of the socialist Progressive Caucus. Brown is tight with George Soros as evident by a personal campaign contribution from him. [3] The National Journal has ranked U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) as the U.S. Senate’s “Most Liberal” member. [4]

Brown is a champion of ACORN and was once a spokesman in their propaganda videos. They in turn supported his campaign. He was named in an ACORN Corruption Congressional Report stating the promotion of a partisan political agenda in violation of many tax and election laws. [5] Brown’s daughter Emily works for Service Employees International Union, [6] the union co-created by ACORN's Wade Rathke.

He wrote an Op-Ed piece for USA Today were he attacks the Tea Party movement as faux populism and extremism. [7]

On March 2nd, Sherrod Brown gave a speech on the Senate floor defending labor unions. He would attack Republicans by comparing them to other horrible governments that were opposed to labor unions; saying that dictators like Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin opposed them. [8] Unknown to Brown, Hitler and Stalin both championed policies Sherrod Brown supports such as universal healthcare, expanded animal welfare laws, support of healthy, organic foods and vegetarianism, a minimum wage, progressive taxation, and tight gun control.

2012 Senate Race

Brown faced Republican Josh Mandel in 2012. Obama formally started his campaign for re-election in Columbus, Ohio together with Brown. Brown has started the Women for Sherrod Brown subgroup, which ties into the national meme from Democrats of a GOP War on Women. The Daily Caller learned that Brown's first wife had a placed a restraining order on him, citing in divorce records that Brown was guilty of extreme cruelty toward her, on several occasions, Larke alleged, her husband had “intimidated, pushed, shoved, and bullied her.” [10]

  • July 1996 he voted against a bill defining marriage as “a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife.”
  • April 2005 he supported “the transportation of a minor across state lines to obtain an abortion without the consent of a parent or legal guardian.”
