Dem. State Rep. Stripped of Title After Telling Teen Girl During Hearing, I Got a Snake Sitting Under My Desk Here
A longtime Connecticut state representative was stripped of his deputy speaker position this week after he made a lewd comment to a teenage girl during a budget hearing.
The 17-year-old was speaking about how a program at the Connecticut Science Center had helped her overcome her fear of snakes, the Connecticut Post reported.
I am usually a very shy person, and now I am more outgoing. I was able to teach those children about certain things like snakes that we have and the turtles that we have , she said. I want to do something toward that, working with children when I get older.
If youre bashful I got a snake sitting under my desk here, Rep. Ernest Hewett (D) replied after her remarks, according to audio of the Feb. 21 incident
The next day.....
"I purposely will not have female interns. My intern now is a male. I want to keep it like that. I've had female interns in the past that sit in my office all day. I thought it was totally weird and I didn't want another. As a matter of fact, I went four, maybe six years without having an intern at all because of stuff like that. I have a male intern, the last two I've had were male."
Will Robin ever address this?
