Scott Brown: Ed Markey 'Should Vote' On Syria, 'Unreal' He Voted 'Present'

Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) slammed Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) for not taking a side in a Wednesday vote on a resolution to bomb Syria.

In a Wednesday Facebook post, Brown called Markey's vote "unreal," and said the people of Massachusetts "sent him down there [to Washington] to at least vote":

Markey was the only member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to vote "present" on the resolution to take military action in Syria in retaliation for President Bashar Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons.

HuffPost's Michael McAuliff and Sabrina Siddiqui reported on the vote:
