BROOKLYN - Borough President Marty Markowitz joked recently by saying he thinks he's found the secret to winning - superimposing his face on Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown's body.

"I know what I gotta do," Markowitz says. "I gotta get in shape and look just like that new senator."

The borough president edited old pictures of the newest U.S. senator that recently ran in Cosmopolitan Magazine.

Brooklyn residents say they didn't mind the stunt and enjoy Markowitz's sense of humor.
