No, it wouldn't, toothbrushes use plastic bristles.

Plastic is naturally an insulator of electricity, hence the static electricity generation.

 

Think regular plastic bags.

Not a problem, I have been using horse-hair paint brushes just for that job for years and don't see any reason to stop any time soon.  My vote is to go ahead and use the brush.
