(Source) Congressman Steve Cohen of Tennessee says he’s ‘stunned and dismayed’ to learn that DNA tests revealed he is not the father of a woman he thought was his daughter. Cohen issued a statement Thursday after CNN reported that DNA tests showed Victoria Brink isn’t his daughter. Cohen revealed that he was Brink’s father in February, after Twitter messages he sent to the 24-year-old Texas model raised questions about their relationship. He said he learned about the relationship three years ago and was overjoyed.
In one tweet, which he sent during the president’s State of the Union speech, he wrote, ‘Happy Valentine’s beautiful girl.’ In a statement, he said he still loves Brink and hopes to remain in her life, though he was ‘stunned and dismayed when DNA tests disproved what Victoria and I believed about our relationship.’ Back in February, Cohen had initially claimed that the 24-year-old model that he was tweeting during the televised speech was a family friend.
But that didn’t silence critics who thought it odd that the ended the messages by writing #ilu, which is short for ‘I love you’. The married congressman later admitted Brink is his daughter from a previous relationship. She had not publicly admitted that he was her father, but the two have grown close since Cohen contacted her mother – his former flame – for unspecified reasons. ‘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. I had such joy, that I couldn’t hold back from tweeting her,’ he told NBC‘s Luke Russert.
Hold on a second here. Did Congressman Cohen just completely reinvent the sleazy politician cheating on his wife game? I mean I’m not going to say he definitively did because I don’t know all the facts but if he did what I think he may have done, well then he’s a fucking genius.
Blazing hot side piece? Nope, sorry, that’s my long lost daughter I just happened to find out about the other. DNA Tests prove it’s in fact not your daughter? Oh well I still love her anyway and want her to be part of my life. I’m honestly shocked no one has done this before. The fake daughter/fuckpiece. It’s absolutely brilliant. Like Cutty says in the Wire, the game done changed.
Seriously though, I would fake father this chick any day of the week.
