On Monday, Boston-born actor Ben Affleck held a fund raiser for Democratic Massachusetts Senate hopeful, Elizabeth Warren in Santa Monica, CA. The West Coast fundraiser dubbed “A Massachusetts Evening” was deemed a success, surpassing its goal of $250,000.
Over the past few years, I’ve been very candid about my frustration with Sen. Scott Brown ignoring the LGBT community here in Massachusetts. The fact that he was an outspoken opponent of Same Sex marriage while serving in the State Legislature only serves to further grate on my nerves. I don’t think Sen. Brown is a bad person or even a bad Senator, I just think that Massachusetts can do better, and I’m pleased to see Ben Affleck lending his name, money and support to Warren’s candidacy.
