Nah, politicians have always been shiatheads, even during the days of the founding fathers.

"I was stunned and dismayed at the results. I still love Victoria, hold dear the time I have shared with her and hope to continue to be part of her life, in bed."

But according to a paternity test conducted by CNN, Brink is not actually Cohen's child.

What, you're too good for Maury?

This is the best news he's ever received.

Let me see if I have this right.

1. A 61-year old Congressman accidentally tweets his love for a 24-year old woman, then deletes the tweet within seconds.

2. Caught by a screencap, he offers the following explanation: the young woman was not a lover, but an illegitimate daughter who he didn't know about until 3 years prior, and whose existence he had never publicly mentioned.

3. Paternity testing confirms that the woman is not related to the Congressman, and is indeed the daughter of the man who raised her.

Even by the standards of Congress, this is pretty bald-faced.

I'd like to see how far the Congressman will go with this story.  Did he meet his daughter at his second house... in the Hamptons?  The one with two solariums?

This is actually a follow-up. In the original story, the girl's mother was under doubt too about the paternity of the child since she was married at the time of her relationship with Cohen.

I really don't think that there was any sort of sexual scandal taking place (well, at least not now - maybe 24 years ago). Cohen has been seen publicly with the girl and her mom on more than one occasion.

Actually, the more I read about this, I am starting to feel sorry for the guy. It seems either the mother honestly thought he was the father, or (dishonestly, take your pick) tried to convince him he was and he didn't follow up on it with a DNA test - he just sort of assumed, yep we were having sex around the right time, so it's probably true. It also seems that he's never been married or has children of his own.

Looks like he was probably earnestly excited to have a child he didn't know about - and then CNN went and did a paternity test and publicly humiliated him. Farking ouch.

I mean, yeah he probably should have asked for a paternity test first time he found out, but a lot of guys just do the math and get on with it (maybe we naively trust women??) But given his public stature he probably should have been more cautious. Like I said, maybe he was just excited to have a kid?

At least now he doesn't feel so disgusted when he jerks off after he gets home from the daddy/daughter dance.
