Connecticut Democrat To 17-Year-Old Girl: 'If You’re Bashful I Got A Snake Sitting Under My Desk Here'

Political Wire:Lawmaker Makes Lewd Remark to Teenage Girl. Connecticut state Rep. Ernest Hewett (D) made an inappropriate remark to a 17 year old girl testifying about a program that helped her overcome her shyness and get over her fear of snakes, the New London Day reports. Said the girl: "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... I want to do something toward that, working with children when I get older." According to an audiotape of the hearing, Hewett replied: "If you're bashful I got a snake sitting under my desk here."
