Most Bizarre Twitter Scandal Ever?

U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tennessee) found himself embroiled in perhaps the most bizarre Twitter scandal ever this week. Seriously … this tale makes the saga of former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s wiener seem pretty straightforward by comparison. Which we suppose it was (ba doom ching …). Anyway, Cohen’s drama started…

U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tennessee) found himself embroiled in perhaps the most bizarre Twitter scandal ever this week. Seriously … this tale makes the saga of former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s wiener seem pretty straightforward by comparison.

Which we suppose it was (ba doom ching …).

Anyway, Cohen’s drama started prior to the State of the Union address when the 63-year-old unmarried lawmaker received a tweet from Victoria Brink, a 24-year-old blonde bombshell from Texas State University.

“Just saw u on tv!” Brink tweeted at the fourth-term liberal from Memphis, Tennessee.

That prompted this exchange …

Hmmmm …

Why is a 63-year-old congressman sending a 24-year-old woman Twitter shorthand for “I love you?” and telling her “Happy Valentines beautiful girl?” Oh … and why did he delete these tweets within minutes after sending them?

Cohen’s office initially responded to The Hill, telling the Washington D.C. publication’s gossip columnist Brink was “the daughter of a longtime friend” of Cohen’s.

As stories so often do in politics, however, this one quickly changed …

Hours later, Cohen was providing a vastly different explanation to NBC News – telling the network Brink wasn’t a love interest, but rather his own daughter.

Yeah …

“When she let me know she was watching the State of the Union address I was thrilled that she wanted Steve Cohen to be part of her (life),” Cohen told NBC. “I had such joy, that I couldn’t hold back from tweeting her.”

According to Cohen, he discovered he had a daughter three years ago.

“I googled her mother, found out she had a child and the math looked pretty accurate,” he told the network. “The mom told me we had a lot of catching up to do.”

No mystery here. Potus needs another intern in the White House – especially a very hot blond who likes parrots and drinks Budweiser beer. That explains his stupid grin!

“the math looked pretty accurate”….. yeah, rightt! Close enough for government work – but, hey idiot, have you heard about the new DNA tests?

Why would you need a DNA test if you believe the mother and you are happy to have a daughter as part of your life? As I said earlier, the man has not made any inconsistent or false statement.

Not really bizarre. Bizarre would be if he tweeted “Thanks for watching! Please take a dump on my chest while I lay in a tub filled with raw meat.”

Or…”I’d crawl cross a minefield covered in broken glass in a jock strap made of fiberglass insulation, with a deranged albino beating me on the buttocks w/a white hot piece of barb wire, just to drink a bucket of monkey vomit with a quarter in the bottom just so I could call u on a pay fone to listen 2u fart thru the receiver.”

Now that would be truly bizarre. I mean, where can you find a pay phone these days, or even one that takes a quarter?

Assuming he is a longtime friend of the mother, the two stories are not inconsistent and neither is false. Giving this man the benefit of the doubt, I actually can see him initially hesitating to say the girl was his daughter, and then deciding its just better to get this out before the press does.

The girl has known for 4 years that Cowen is her father,he has known for 3 years.Her mother is Cynthia White Sinatra(her last husband was Frank Sinatra Jr )a high powered attorney in Texas.Sinatra ran against Rand Paul for Congress and lost…..Cohen was not married when the tryst happened,nor was Sinatra…..A man finds out after twenty years that he is a father….he gets to enjoy his beautiful daughter without changing diapers or suffering through teenaged years.
