Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., struck back at the son of his Senate predecessor today. Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., had criticized Brown for seeking to be sworn in quickly so that he could take votes in the Senate instead of appointed (not elected) Sen. Paul Kirk, D-Mass.

Said Brown:

“I was elected and the votes are certified and I’m here to do my job. It’s unfortunate that he would use mean-spirited comments like that at a time when we’re just trying to solve the problems of the Commonwealth,” Brown said today on his first full day on the job.
