This time Scott Brown said no. Too shy, maybe? The freshman senator from Massachusetts, ribbed ceaselessly for his "sexiest man" appearance 28 years ago in Cosmopolitan
magazine, apparently declined to pose for a "50 Most Beautiful People on Capitol Hill" gallery published Wednesday by The Hill
Brown (R-Mass.) was one of six members of Congress, along with a raft of young staffers, chosen for their good looks in the lighthearted annual survey focused on a place not known for its sexiness. But Brown, 50, wouldn't go along with the frivolity, according to the Washington Post
. The newspaper said Brown's office didn't return calls about the matter. But the Reliable Source column said it learned that he hadn't agreed to pose for a photograph or do an interview for the article.
Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), one of the other lawmakers selected, also refused to cooperate, the Post said. The other beautiful Congresspersons: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) and Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.). In its article, The Hill confirmed that Brown and Hunter declined interviews.
