Dem lawmaker tweets college co-ed, then deletes messages

Rep. Steve Cohen repeatedly tweeted, and then deleted, messages to a woman on Twitter who his office is calling “the daughter of a longtime friend” and who has the same name as a Texas State University blonde bombshell featured in a college co-ed calendar.

In a Tuesday night message ahead of President Obama’s State of the Union address, a Twitter user named Victoria Brink tweeted to the Tennessee Democrat, “just saw you on tv!”

According to a tweet captured by the nonpartisan Sunlight Foundation’s Politiwoops site, Cohen replied to Brink, “pleased u r watching. Ilu” The tweet was deleted after three minutes.

Both Wikipedia and define “ilu” as Internet slang for either “I love you” or “I like you.”

In another message sent Wednesday morning, Cohen wrote again to Brink on Twitter: “nice to know you were watchin SOTU (state of the union.) Happy Valentines beautiful girl. Ilu.” That message was deleted within 15 minutes of being posted.

A biography of Victoria Brink on says the 24-year-old, who is seen posing in a turquoise and pink bikini, plans on “moving back to Beverly Hills or Houston to pursue a career in the fashion industry and do modeling on the side,” following her graduation.

I’m sure their relationship is completely platonic and there is no hanky-panky going on. After all, he’s a Democratic Congressman and they don’t do stuff like that.

You’ve seen him. Make the jump to see her:


Yeah, girls like that are always eager to be my friend. I gotta chase ’em off with a stick. I don’t know what it is about us creepy old dudes.

We’re chick magnets.

    Doesn’t his staff think it might be wise to tell him that Twitter is…uh…public? How stupid are these guys?! It’s not like it’s the first time it’s happened and torpedoed someone’s career. How is Anthony Weiner doing now?

    Police scoured mountain peaks for days, using everything from bloodhounds to high-tech helicopters in their manhunt for a revenge-seeking ex-cop. They had no idea he was hiding among them, holed up in a vacation cabin across the street from their command post.

    It was there that Christopher Dorner apparently took refuge last Thursday, four days after beginning a deadly rampage that would claim four lives.

      No mention because he didn’t want this tragedy brought up again which would reflect badly on him and 3AM phone call.

    OT. I’m so sleepy that when I tried to say “Look what I got” to my kid I actually said “Ooga wooga ooga”

    Need more coffee.

    It turns out she’s his daughter. No kidding. Really:

    Good thing she (obviously) takes after her mom.

    You should probably publish an update 😉

    • myiq2xu says:

      Why? I said there was nothing going on.

      It’s kinda funny that when the story first broke he said she was a friend. Now she’s his daughter?

      Let’s see what the story is tomorrow.

      • Propertius says:

        At the very least, the “nookie” keyword is probably no longer appropriate. 😉

      • Propertius says:

        To elaborate a bit: I tend to think that the personal lives of public officials are none of my damned business, as long as they don’t involve criminality, corruption, or abuse. Perhaps if we paid as much attention to their legislative records as their twitter accounts, we might all be better off. I don’t care that he has a 24 year-old illegitimate daughter. I wouldn’t care if she had indeed been his mistress. It’s not important. As long as it’s not influencing legislation I really don’t think it’s news.
