Hewett (CT Rep-D) defends comment, says he won't resign (Told 17 Y/O girl got a "snake" for her)

Rep. Ernest Hewett, who was removed as deputy speaker this week after making what some saw as an inappropriate comment to a teenager, defended himself Friday.

“I have been disciplined and I haven’t even had due process,” said Hewett, a New London Democrat.

During a Feb. 20 Appropriations Committee hearing, a female 17-year-old ambassador for the Connecticut Science Center asked the committee to continue funding the center’s ambassador program.

During her speech, she said the program helped her overcome her shyness and get over her fear of snakes.

According to an audiotape of the hearing, Hewett said: “If you’re bashful I got a snake sitting under my desk here.”

On Friday, Hewett said, “If she had said elephants, I would have said elephants.”

“Ernest Hewett CT Rep-D”

I guess the D stands for “Dirty old man.”

Of course he won’t apologize. He’s got more than enough insurance.

In FULL METAL JACKET it was called “Alabama Black Snake”. So, I guess there are “Connecticut Black Snakes”.

Ahh, come on, he’s a DEMOCRAT.

THEY can do ANYTHING they want and get away with it. Look at that little troll Menendez!

If he was a REPUBLICAN, he would be in BIG trouble!!

Rep. Ernest Hewett, one of Obama’s and Holder's sons that's a disgusting Donkey pervert. But that's OK, he's not expected to have any values or morality. Those are oxymorons for Donkeys (and O’s and H's sons).

He was just thinking “Black Snake Moan”.

Pretty cheezy comment, even in a bar.

Well, here you go.

This is the chance for 100 conservative women to occupy this snake’s office and demand he resign. Call him a misogynist, a woman-hater and a racist. Pile on, woman patriots. Drive this pig from office.

If you don’t do this, expect worse from these Nazi democrats. He crossed the line by insulting a child; make him pay.

You just knew that with a comment like that he would have been one of Holder’s peeps.

He’s black and a Dim. That’s a carte blanche. (Oh, wait; I can’t say “blanche” because that means “white.”)

I don’t care whether he “survives” or not. Hewitt is still a dirtball, unless he apologizes.

I remember a judge fondly who used to invite me to see his one eared elephant. He would then pull out his pants pocket and pretend to undo his zipper. We all just laughed at him. But I wasn’t 17.

I work in New London, and used to live there a couple years ago, I highly doubt that this will ever happen.

Nothing new...just as tacky though

“That’s what SHE said”

“I got your (fill in the blank) swinging”

are both ‘blasts’ from the past when it involves ‘sexual innuendos’ or ‘double speak’

Looking back, Stupid then, Stupid now.

BUT in a public forum you would think the behavior of the ‘elected officials’ would be on a slightly more formal basis.

Also a VERY GOOD lesson for the 17 year old to see how ‘Government “works”’ and what her future tax dollar and vote will bring upon her.
