Democrats try to get copies of Senator Scott Brown’s medical records AND those of his family

U.S. Sen. Scott Brown — an upstart Blue State Republican in the cross hairs of national Democrats — is lashing out at the party’s opposition researchers, accusing them of prying into his family’s private health insurance records, and demanding that they stop fighting dirty.
“It seems in bad form. Obviously, when it comes to information about my wife and daughters, it crosses the line. I find it offensive and so do they,” Brown told the Herald yesterday.
“They (Democrats) don’t have any business muddling in the private health records of my family,” said Brown, adding that his family is “disturbed” by the intrusion.
Officials from the Group Insurance Commission, the state’s health insurance provider, notified Brown on Tuesday that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee asked them “to provide insurance information,” according to a copy of the GIC letter obtained by the Herald.
The GIC, a quasi-independent state agency, administers health insurance for state employees and their families. Brown’s wife, Gail Huff, and two daughters, Ayla and Arianna, were also on his state insurance plan when he was a Wrentham state senator.
A copy of the DSCC request provided to the Herald asks for “all direct correspondence” between Brown and the GIC under the Massachusetts public records law.
Now this is rich….
A DSCC spokesman insisted the request was only for public information and never sought private medical information about the Brown family.
To provide insurance information, like what was paid out, claims made etc. It is pretty easy to reverse engineer a medical record from that information, but oh no, you don’t want medical information, WHICH IS WHY YOU SENT THE LETTER TO THE STATE MEDICAL INSURANCE COMMISSION….
Come on guys, if you are going to issue a denial, can you at least come up with one that is better than that? Remember this is the state with RomneyCare folks, they state will have those records and the Democrats want them.
The Democratic Party illegally obtained Michael Steele’s credit report and released it, Obama illegally obtained a copy of Jack Ryan’s sealed divorce papers to put the details of his sex life and such on the front page and the Democrats also put Congressman Allen West’s Social Security number and other person info in a mailer to 60,000 people.
