Skip to comments.Tennessee Congressman's Alleged Twitter Love Is Actually His Long Lost Daughter
Posted on 02/15/2013 4:18:43 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia
Rep. Steve Cohen, a Tennessee Democrat, attracted unwanted attention during the State of the Union address, when press reported on what appeared to be flirtatious tweets sent to a very pretty 24-year-old blonde. It didn't help Cohen's case when he then deleted the tweets just a few minutes. Oh no, it's another Weinergate only not as exciting because there's no penis photo, the conservative media crowed. Turns out Rep. Cohen actually has a very pretty 24-year-old daughter, a fact that has been kept secret from the public for, well, 24 years. Scandal dodged. Sort of.
It's actually pretty sweet story. Cohen told NBC News the whole thing on Thursday. Yes, Brinks has a secret daughter. Her name is Victoria Brink, and she appears to have had some sort of career as a bikini model. The congressman only found out about her three years ago. "I googled her mother, found out she had a child and the math looked pretty accurate," he said. "The mom told me we had a lot of catching up to do." Since then, Cohen's done his best to be a good dad. He's given her a tour of the Capitol and even took her to the White House Christmas party, where he asked the official photographer to take two pictures one with him and Brinks together and one without Brinks since nobody else knew about the situation. After that, Brinks took a trip to Memphis, Cohen's home district, though it's unclear if she hung out with dear old dad.

He’s a Dem? Move on, nothing to see here!
I'm glad I'm not a professional journalist. I could never write such prose.
Are there no editors in the media anymore? Brinks or Brink, which is it you morons!
Yeah, That was the next question I was going to ask but then I decided it wasn't worth it.
If it was a Republican, the media would be asking for DNA proof.
I smell a liberal media coverup. Cohen is an absolute idiot, and an extreme liberal. Or am I being redundant here...
If true, it means that Cohen was interested in women at least once in his life, however fleeting.
The woman's name is Victoria Brink (not Brinks), and she seems like a nice young woman - not guilty. As for the Congressman, I have trouble seeing this as either a career-ender or a pretty sweet story. It's sweet when you marry your high school sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter like this girl. It sad when you jump in bed with a near stranger (someone who could spend the next nine months pregnant and you wouldn't notice) and then discover twenty one years later that you're a dad. It's creepy when a man in his 60s is chasing a young woman like this girl. The congressman missed sweet and he (apparently) missed creepy; I'm going with sad.
Daddy’s little girl wears hooker shoes in bed.
I would abort that. [/sarc]
He’s a Democrat so daughter and girl friend are not mutually exclusive.
Hey,you’ll be sixty some day and want younger women. and older whisky and faster horses.
She appears to be healthy.
Change would to DO.
Gee maybe Bob Menendez has a new cover story.... love child in the Dominican Repub? ..... :)
If you take ONE word at face that this lying idiot utters, you are as crazy as Stevie.
probably true these days
