Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Scott Brown launched into Democratic Jeanne Shaheen on Tuesday, saying "she lied" in a new TV spot from the incumbent Democratic senator which Brown calls "despicable." But it looks like Brown is the one who's distorting the record.

Shaheen's ad states that Brown sponsored a bill to force women to look at color photographs of developing fetuses before having an abortion. "Scott Brown wants the government to tell women how to make this decision," a female narrator says in the spot.
