Sen. Scott Brown Reveals Childhood Sexual Abuse In Interview
Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown reveals a secret from his past in an upcoming 60 Minutes interview:
Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) reveals that he was sexually abused as a child multiple times in an interview scheduled to air on CBS’ “60 Minutes” on Sunday evening.
In discussing the matter with Lesley Stahl, Brown explains that he hadn’t even told his mother about what happened. The Republican senator recalls suffering sexual abuse on several occasions when he was young by a camp counselor and also living with an abusive stepfather.
“That’s what happens when you’re a victim,” explains Brown of his reluctance to tell his mother what occurred. “You’re embarrassed. You’re hurt.”
Brown certainly deserves kudos for coming forward with this story.
