This video, posted by Blue Mass Group this morning, shows the ugliness and depths a campaign can sink to when they're seeing an inevitable loss. Faced with the grim prospect of imminent unemployment, the Brown staffers take matters into their own hands.

BOSTON —Staffers for Sen. Scott Brown chanted Indian "war whoops" and made "tomahawk chops" during a rally for the Republican senator this week in Boston.

In a video posted on YouTube, Brown's staffers are seen holding campaign signs near the Erie Pub, chanting and making tomahawk chops, presumably in reference to Elizabeth Warren's claims of Cherokee heritage.

Brown's deputy Chief of Staff Greg Casey and Constituent Service Counsel Jack Richard, and GOP operative Brad Garrett are pictured in the video, NewsCenter 5's Janet Wu confirmed.

Earlier this week, Brown's campaign launched a new television ad featuring clips of news reports on Warren's Native American claims.

Scott Brown has since said he doesn't "condone" such behavior, yet the damage may already have been done to his campaign as such amateur hour tactics have foreseeable consequences at the ballot box.
