Politicans' loss Is Autism Group's Gain

BOSTON --  A Massachusetts research collaborative looking into the causes and treatment of autism is the first beneficiary of an unusual deal struck by U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren to discourage third-party campaign ads.
Warren on Friday chose the Autism Consortium to receive a donation from Brown under the agreement signed by both candidates in January.
The deal — dubbed the “People’s Pledge” by both campaigns — is designed to blunt the influence of negative attack ads in what is shaping up to be the most expensive U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts history.
