Sen. Scott Brown Tells All
Posted on Feb 16, 2011
Is it just us, or does the publication of a revealing memoir, including details of childhood molestation and abuse, by a first-term senator herald yet another sea change in the game of political publicity? Of course, Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts isn’t just any new arrival to Capitol Hill, nor is he a stranger to the media gambit (hello, Cosmo!), for that matter. —KA
Los Angeles Times:
Brown, 51, has written a book, “Against All Odds,” in which he also recounts physical abuse at the hands of several stepfathers. In the interview, he recounts an instance when he contemplated buying a house where he lived with one of his stepfathers so that he could “burn it down” as a cathartic act.
