This morning CNN aired an interview between congressional correspondent Dana Bash and Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.). Cohen is the congressman who began tweeting to a blonde coed back in February, raising eyebrows as to just who Victoria Brink was. At the time, many wondered if she was his girlfriend. Cohen ultimately said she was her daughter and introduced her at Washington parties as such.
New revelations last week, including a DNA test, however, proved otherwise.
“She said she didn’t know who her biological father was, she said for her mental health she needed it,” Cohen told CNN of the DNA test. “I would have avoided it but I’d do anything for Victoria.”
Cohen said he still feels like he’s her father. “We still communicate and I care about her greatly and I think she cares about me and I hope, we plan to continue to have a relations,” he told Bash. “I still think of her as my daughter.”
