(Newser) – Scott Brown is fuming at comedian Kathy Griffin over a crack she made on TV about his two daughters being "prostitutes." (See video here.) The Massachusetts senator (who embarrassed the girls during his victory speech by joking they were "available") fired off an angry statement to Griffin and the Bravo network, notes Ben Smith's blog at Politico.

“People can call me any name they want, but families are off limits," said Brown's statement. "I love my daughters Ayla and Arianna very much, and any parent would be proud to have them as children. Kathy Griffin and Bravo ought to be ashamed of themselves.”
