Shameless Coakley Uses MLK Event To Campaign For Votes

Shameful, absolutely shameful ! Coakley uses a MLK remembrance breakfast to campaign for votes ! How pathetic can you get ?

Coakley, in her remarks, linked her candidacy to the legacy of King and Edward M. Kennedy.

"If you send me to the Senate, I will be guided by those values," she said. "It's not about me anymore. It ...never was. It's what Martin Luther King stood for. It’s what Ted Kennedy stood for."

"I'm running for the United States Senate because Dr. King's work is unfinished; his dream is unrealized," she said."Tomorrow we act on the dream and we make sure that we allow me to continue that work," Coakley said. "We remember the dream tomorrow and we will act on the dream tomorrow."

Republican Scott Brown attended the breakfast but was not one of the speakers. He had this to say:

"I certainly did not realize that this was a rally for Martha and I thought it was inappropriate that she starting asking for people's votes when we are trying to remember Martin Luther King Jr."
