Scott Brown: I Was Sexually Abused

60 Minutes has posted preview video of its profile of Sen. Scott Brown, [see below] which airs this Sunday. In it, he discusses the revelation in his forthcoming memoir that he was sexually abused as a child by a camp counselor. Powerful stuff. 

Brown will also talk about physical abuse he suffered at the hands of stepfathers. From a 60 Minutes press release: 

[Brown] tells Stahl of another cathartic act he wished he could have done in Wakefield, Mass., when a house he lived in with an abusive stepfather came up for sale.

"I actually called the realtor and went in and took the tour and relived kind of where everything was... to make sure I wasn't... dreaming. As I left, I said, 'Man, I wish I had the money. I'd just buy this thing and burn it down.'
