Mass. camp where Sen. alleges abuse under scrutiny

Prosecutors are taking a deeper look into a Massachusetts summer camp where U.S. Sen. Scott Brown says he was sexually abused as a child now that another former camper says he was abused there.

Attorney Mitchell Garabedian, who represents the former camper, referred the allegation to the Cape and Islands district attorney's office on Monday. Garabedian tells The Boston Globe the employee who allegedly assaulted his client in the mid-1980s still works at Camp Good News in Sandwich. The man alleges he was molested at the Cape Cod camp as a 10 year old.

The district attorney's office says it has launched an investigation.

First Assistant District Attorney Brian Glenny says he's received several calls relating to other matters at the camp since Brown disclosed the abuse in his autobiography.
