BOSTON — Sen. Scott Brown has revealed that he was sexually abused as a child several times by a camp counselor and has detailed physical abuse by a stepfather.

The Republican senator from Massachusetts makes the revelations in an interview to air Sunday night on "60 Minutes."

Brown says a camp counselor threatened to kill him if he disclosed the sexual abuse. He also says he looked into buying a home where his stepfather had physically abused him just so he could "burn it down."

Brown emerged on the national political scene with his improbable victory in the race for Sen. Edward Kennedy's seat. He details the childhood trauma in a new book, "Against All Odds."
