SHOCKER: Congressman’s Daughter Isn’t Actually His Daughter

Remember back during the State of the Union address when Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) publicly tweeted a happy Valentine’s at a “stunning” college-aged model named Victoria Brink and everyone started screaming ‘AFFAIR!’ before they had all the facts? Then we found out Brink was actually Cohen’s out-of-wedlock daughter?

Well, after all that we actually still didn’t have all the facts. And neither did Cohen.

Turns out, according to Politico, a paternity test has revealed Brink isn’t actually Cohen’s daughter. But they look so much alike, right?! “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,” the congressman said in a statement.

Apparently CNN arranged for the test with Brink’s cooperation, but Politico says he didn’t agree to appear on camera.
