“Every Time I look at Her I See the German Jew in Her Face”
A Jewish Democratic Congressman caught tweeting a young blonde during the State of the Union address given by U.S. President Barack Obama Tuesday had to own up to the fact that it was his daughter.
Steve Cohen, a married Congressman, initially said that the woman was a family friend but ultimately came clean. He found out about the girl , Ashley Brink, only three years ago while doing a Google search of her mother, a former flame, and learned that she had a daughter.
He contacted her after realizing that the “math looked pretty accurate.”
‘The mom told me we had a lot of catching up to do, he told NBC’s Luke Russert, adding that she told him, “Every time I look at her I see the German Jew in her face.”
Cohen responded: “I’m Lithuanian- close enough.”
Cohen’s heritage is a proud point for him, as he is the first Jewish congressman from Tennessee.
