Sen. Scott Brown Zings Santorum: Getting Secret Service Was ‘The First Time He’s Actually Used Protection!’

Republican Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown took a shot at Rick Santorum and his opinions on birth control during Boston’s annual St. Patrick’s Day breakfast. Brown observed that both Newt Gingrich and Santorum were getting Secret Service — which he found notable for the former Pennsylvania Senator. “I think it’s the first time he’s actually ever used protection!” The crowd erupted in guffaws.

Brown was cheekily alluding to Santorum’s belief that birth control gives people a license to engage in a sexual lifestyle that is not “how things are supposed to be.”

The breakfast event has traditionally served as a roast for politicians.

A staunch Romney supporter, Brown was one of the GOP frontrunner’s earliest endorsers. The Massachusetts Senator once introduced him at CPAC as “one of the Republican Party’s bright lights” and “my very, very dear friend.”
