Senator Scott Brown Nude In Cosmo 1982

In a stunning blow to Democrats, Republican Scott Brown ended the party’s half-century grip on the Senate seat once held by Ted Kennedy, coming out of nowhere to give the GOP the crucial 41st vote needed to thwart President Obama and his liberal agenda. But did you know that the 50-year-old politician has several links to pop culture as well?

For starters, Sen. Brown paid his way through law school at Tufts University by posing nearly nude for a spread in Cosmopolitan Magazine back in 1982. Secondly, 21-year-old Ayla Brown — the oldest of the Senator’s two daughters — was a 2007 semifinalist on American Idol.
