Scott Brown Reveals Abuse

Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) has “revealed that he was sexually abused at the age of 10 by a camp counselor,” MSNBC reports.

"Fortunately, nothing was ever fully consummated, so to speak but it was certainly  – back then  – very traumatic," the Massachusetts Republican said in an interview with 60 Minutes. He has never reported the incidents, he added, saying "I haven’t told anybody. That’s what happens when you’re a victim." 

Brown, who said that he was sexually abused "more than once," recalled that the perpetrator threatened to kill him if he revealed the abuse.
