| 1. David Kravitz still silent on Warren practicing law without a license
Today marks the two week point that former SCOTUS law clerk David Kravitz has not commented on Elizabeth Warren's lack of law license in Massachusetts.
With yesterday's shot across the bow of the Board of Bar Overseers by the MassGOP, perhaps the long awaited complaint against Warren is coming.
I have always believed that a complaint needed to be filed, by a person with significant gravitas, to both the board of bar overseers, and the District Attorney of Middlesex County. After all the unlicensed practice of law is a misdemeanor.
2. After strong debate perfomance, Brown opens lead in WBUR poll
In the first public poll taken completely after Scott Brown's stellar debate performance in Lowell last week, Brown has taken a lead in the WBUR poll. This poll released this weekend by Western New England University was taken from 9/28/2012 to 10/4/2012. This time period was mostly before the Lowell Debate.
A new WBUR poll (PDFs - topline, crosstabs) finds a turn in the U.S. Senate race. Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Scott Brown now leads his Democratic challenger, Elizabeth Warren, 47 to 43 percent. The survey, conducted Oct. 5-7, has a 4.4 percent margin of error.
In WBUR's last Senate poll, conducted in September, Warren led brown by two points.
Team Warren may also be seeing the numbers going Brown's way after his strong debate performance. Yesterday, the DSCC released an internal poll showing Brown down.
