Twitter was buzzing yesterday over a photo of Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee “creep-tweeting” during the president’s state of the union address. The mystery deepened when the tweets, reportedly to a Texas State University co-ed, disappeared.

Cohen’s office explained that the young woman was the daughter of a longtime friend, but Luke Russert has some information that makes the “I love you” tweets a little less creepy, but just as mysterious. Russert says Cohen has told him the young woman is actually his daughter, whom he only recently met.

For now, it seems we’ve swapped one scandal with another scandal of sorts. Couldn’t our legislators just surprise us with a balanced budget or something for a change?

      You remember that the next time a republican does something similar, okay? “Family Matter”.

      What conspiracy spin? Generally, it is regarded as rather odd behavior for an older man to converse with a seemingly much younger college co-ed who is perceived as a stranger to the former. Those expressing the collective feeling of “ewwww” would not be in a position to know that this woman was, indeed, his illegitimate daughter. It is amusing that the pleas for privacy are invoked when a D follows a man’s name (remember John Edwards?). This moral platitude is not often afforded to those on the right.

      As often as the leftists keep changing the definition of “family”, it’s hard to keep up with, Tony.
      Of course, if some citizens don’t agree with them, they try to bully into submission.
      And, if that doesn’t work…it’s time to “outlaw” opposition.

    Hmm. Illegitimate child, eh?

    This is surprising. Here in his hometown, it’s been rumored that he is “light in the loafers”. But, cheers for him, if true.

    “the daughter of a longtime friend” i.e. the woman Steve impregnated 25 years ago?

  • KansasGirl

    Well that settles that, no more questions are allowed.
    You know, for the privacy of the family. /sarc
