(NECN: Alison King) - "What Scott Brown and all of the Republicans favor is keep the big money secret," said Mass. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren.
Warren blasted her opponent Scott Brown for joining with other Republicans earlier in the week to block debate of the Disclose Act, a bill that would require organizations that put millions of dollars into campaign ads to disclose their top donors.
"What Scott Brown just voted for is keep ‘em all secret. So they can keep putting money into campaigns and nobody knows who they are. That's what real transparency is about," said Warren.
Brown said he blocked the bill in part because it would favor labor unions over business groups then countered by calling on Warren to release her personnel records from Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania to clarify he says whether or not she benefited from claiming Native American heritage without any evidence.
Then Republicans released a video called "What is She Hiding?"
"This is the same old same old. We've been over this," said Warren. "Because what this is really about is that Scott Brown voted to keep secret the big money interests in politics right now and he's trying to find a way to just distract people from that."
Warren was in Boston for a tour of a sheet metal workers training facility, where she got a lesson in reading mechanical drawings that was followed by a walk-through of the Roslindale business district. However, weekday outings with media availabilities have been rare in recent weeks.
Aside from fund raisers and private events, Warren has kept a relatively low profile this summer. Some have called it an "under the radar" strategy. But Warren denies that.
Warren says she's been crisscrossing the state for 11 months, meeting people and taking questions.
"As I recall, I think I'm the only candidate in this Senate race who's been holding town halls and taking questions from anybody who wanted to ask them," said Warren.
That was a dig at Brown, who the Warren camp says does not hold town halls.
