Scott Brown Says Daughters are "Over" the Embarrassing Comment

Senator-elect Scott Brown was in Washington today visiting with future colleagues and touring Capitol Hill. CBS News' Capitol Hill correspondent Nancy Cordes spoke with the most talked about person on the Hill about his plans, the policies and his parenting on "Washington Unplugged."

Cordes asked Brown about the "cringe-inducing" admission he made during his acceptance speech Tuesday. The victorious candidate thanked his supporters and family including his two daughters saying "in case anyone was wondering they are both available."

Cordes said that Brown told her that they had gotten "over it" and that "they have a sense of humor" and "know how their dad is."
