ABC News Forgets to Mention He’s a Democrat: CT Lawmaker Apologizes for Inviting Teen to ‘Snake’ Under His Desk

Posted by on Mar 03, 2013 at 10:48 am

Can you imagine the ‘War on Women’ mileage the media would wring out of this story if it involved a Republican? But since the offending lowlife is a Democrat, ABC News doesn’t even mention it.

Media bias? What media bias?

A  five-time Connecticut state representative  issued an apology and was stripped of his leadership post for what some people construed as a lewd remark to a teenage girl.

“If you’re bashful I got a snake sitting under my desk here,” State Rep. Ernest Hewett can be heard telling a 17-year-old  girl during a Feb. 20 committee meeting.

The teenager had just testified in support of more funding for the Connecticut Science Center’s ambassador program.

She had told lawmakers that by participating in the program, which included handling snakes and turtles, she became more outgoing.

Hewett told ABC News’ New Haven affiliate WTNH-TV that he meant nothing sexual by the comment.

“I have apologized to her for what was taken out of context,” he said.

Taken out of context? Sure. ABC News wasn’t the only media outlet failing to mention his party affiliation. Funny how that works, huh?

    Can’t even work up any piss about it anymore. The “Imagine The Outrage And Furor If He Were A Republican” nomination category is overflowing and unceasing.
