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.
Sen. Scott Brown, (D-Mass.)
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.

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Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.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.
