Massachusetts Republican Sen.-elect Scott Brown shocked the television audience during his victory speech Tuesday night when he pointed out that his daughters were "beautiful" and "available." Now Ayla Brown, 21, says she's received more than 1,058 requests on Facebook for dates.

"Let's just say we had a family talk," Ayla Brown told the Boston Herald. "I cannot believe he said that on national television." She added that her father was "not joking." Scott Brown later said that his daughters "have a sense of humor" and were "over it."

Ayla and her younger sister, 19-year-old Arianna, were standing onstage next to their father when he advertised their availability: "And as always, I rely on Gail's love and support and that of our two lovely daughters. So I want to thank Ayla and Arianna for their help as well. And just in case anyone who's watching throughout the country – yes, they're both available."

"No, only kidding, only kidding," Brown continued, after realizing what he had said. "Only kidding, only kidding. Arianna's definitely not available. But Ayla is."

Fox News host Glenn Beck slammed Brown for the remark, saying they cast him in a creepy light. "Listen. I want a chastity belt on this man. I want his every move watched in Washington. I don't trust this guy. I'm just tellin' ya. This one could end with a dead intern."

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
