It turns out that Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., actually doesn't have the daughter he thought he did.
After Cohen raised questions for tweeting -- and deleting -- at a blond aspiring model during the State of the Union address this year, he revealed that the woman was actually his 24-year-old daughter, Victoria Brink, who he did not know existed until a few years earlier.
But according to a paternity test conducted by CNN, Brink is not actually Cohen's child.
Cohen's office confirms that a paternity test was conducted, and that Cohen is not Victoria's father. They also released a statement from the congressman:
"I was stunned and dismayed at the results. I still love Victoria, hold dear the time I have shared with her and hope to continue to be part of her life."
Cohen also made news when he tweeted at Cyndi Lauper during a concert at the White House in April. He tweeted, and then deleted the tweets to Lauper, in an effort to get the media to cover the tweets, which were about the concert that he was trying to promote.
