Cosmopolitan dug through their archives to find a June 1982 issue featuring a very naked chap by the name of Scott Brown playing centerfold model. Flattering, in a certain light, but possibly problematic for Brown, who is running for Ted Kennedy‘s United States Senate seat in Massachusetts. “Vote for Brown. He Has One Hell of a Stimulus Package,” the lady mag suggests as a slogan.
The appearance was part of that summer’s “America’s Sexiest Man” contest, which Brown won as “a 22-year-old law student at Boston College who was cramming for finals just days before stripping down for our photographer.” He’s a bit Tom Selleck, a bit Scott Baio, by our estimation.
“Here at Cosmo we’ve had bachelors go on to be actors, models, and reality show stars, so we’re thrilled that one has gone on to become a politician,” says Kate White, Cosmo’s editor in chief. Obviously we know how to pick ’em. This particular bachelor has always had political ambitions and even admitted to being “a bit of a patriot” when we interviewed him.
Thoughts, Mr. Brown?
Go get ’em, stud!
