A man of the 50’s

4 Mar

Ernest-Hewett-sizedConnecticut state Democrat Representative Ernest Hewett is just an old-fashioned guy.

A man of the 50’s, so to speak, who sees nothing wrong with a lewd remark to a teenage girl at a legislative hearing.

Something about checking his “snake under his desk”.

And no, he doesn’t have a problem with women, he says.

And then indicates he does.

“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.”

Here’s more.

“I don’t get to choose. That’s why I was so leery about staying away from interns. I don’t know what they’re going to give me. They may give me a female, but I don’t want a female intern. That may sound sexist but I really don’t. That way that keeps me good and that keeps everybody else good.”

His mother must be very proud of him.

See, we don’t only pick on Republicans.
