A Connecticut Democrat made a lewd comment to a high school senior at a recent legislative hearing. She was 17 years old.

The teen girl visited the Connecticut state Capitol to deliver a speech to a committee. She explained that working at the science center had helped her overcome her shyness and fear of snakes.

Connecticut State Rep. Ernest Hewett (D-epraved) replied, “If you’re bashful I got a snake sitting under my desk here.” Audio available at Political Wire.

His punishment?

He can’t be deputy speaker anymore and he had to apologize. Poor dear.

On Thursday, Rep. Hewett said, “In hindsight, I can really see how this can be misconstrued as something sexual.” Um, unless he did indeed have a python curled up under his desk, how else could it be construed?

      The perv needs a touch of the ‘Old Snake’ right enough. Fifty lashes should do it.

            Actually, I believe they should suffer more, after all — they know what they are doing is wrong.

          Larry Craig – out of office, and his “victim” was an adult.
          Mark Foley – out of office.
          Paul Babeu – announced he was gay. No charges of making lewd remarks to a underaged girl.
          Troy King – out of office.
          Jim McCrery – out of office. Outed as gay by the left, a charge he denies. Has never been accused of making sexual references to a minor.
          Roy Ashburn – out of office. Announced he was gay.
          Bob Allen – out of office. Once again, nothing to do with a minor.
          Edward Schrock – out of office. Again, outed as gay by a leftist group with no evidence whatsoever.

          Not a single one of the people on that list was accused of having affairs with minors, or making crude sexual remarks to minors. And every single one of them except for Babeu no longer serves in any elected office.

          You liberals, OTOH, will continue to elect creeps like this to office over and over again, and he’ll steadily advance in rank and power despite this little “temporary setback”, which I’m sure you view as nothing more than a tiny mistake that’s being blown way out of proportion for political gain by the evil “RethigliKKKlans.”

          And if only we’d make screwing underage boys and girls legal, then it wouldn’t even be a problem at all. Right?

          • http://twitter.com/redsoxunixgeek Smitty 

            You Liberals… Jesus Christ man, you missed the point completely. Which was there are numb nuts on both sides of the isle, not just one party has a stranglehold on stupidity. Lighten up.

          • http://twitter.com/Gator_Country Stephen K

            Not buying – you just posted a long string of names of Republican politicians in an attempt to make the “everyone does it!” defense, and I completely debunked it as not being anywhere near what this guy did with five minutes of Google time.

            Already I see liberal posters on several sites making excuses for him, claiming he was “just joking!” or “he didn’t mean that in a sexual way!” If he was a Republican, he would have already been forced to resign his seat. But since he’s got that magic “D” after his name, this will be at most a one-day story, and once it goes away he’ll continue his career in “public service” uninterrupted. The ONLY reason he said what he did is that he knew he could get away with it.

            And until liberals actually start punishing their people for doing stupid things, instead of defending the idiots and using what they say to attack Republicans and conservatives, they deserve all the contempt they can get.

        I don’t live with my mind in the gutter viewing every single comment through the lens of sex so I can see how that could have been just a stupid and unfortunate thing to say… particularly when so many people are going to immediately assume he was hitting on a 17 year old girl in a room full of adults.

        • aegean1

          Even if you don’t live with your mind in the gutter, what else could that phrase have possibly meant? That defense makes no sense at all. If he didn’t know what that phrase meant, then he’s an even bigger idiot for saying it without knowing the meaning.

    Nothing happened to him except that he had to resign the leadership. This is CT. They elected a senator who lied about serving in Viet Nam. They elected a state senator who was caught playing a drinking game on Facebook during the public hearings on Sandy Hook and it was she who expressed outrage at those who condemned her for that by calling them “meanies”. They elected a governor who ran as “Dan Malloy” and as soon as he was sworn in insisted that from now on he be called “Dannell” and then went on to impose the largest tax increase in CT’s history . And he will, no doubt, be reelected in 2014. A little perving on a teenager? That’s no big deal in CT if you’re a DEMOCRAT.
