This just in: Sen. Scott Brown reveals he was sexually abused as a child
In a new book -- and now, a "60 Minutes" spot -- Sen. Scott Brown reveals he was molested by a camp counselor at age 10, and never reported it to anyone until now. "My mom will read about it for the first time," he said in a Lesley Stahl interview to air Sunday. "When people find people like me at that young vulnerable age, who are basically lost, the thing that they have over you is, they make you believe that no one will believe you." Other bad childhood stuff comes out in the memoir, "Against All Odds," including beatings from a stepdad. On the lighter side: The perks of fame in 1982 after Cosmo named him "America's Sexiest Man," such as free pass into Studio 54, where Calvin Klein tried to rip off his shirt and Rick James's posse offered him drugs (he declined).
