A Massachusetts Democratic state lawmaker who is serving time in prison for beating a woman when she refused to have sex with him continues to serve in the state legislature.
State Representative Carlos Henriquez of Dorchester was sentenced to six months in prison on January 15 after a jury convicted him of beating a woman he had been dating after she would not have sex with him.
Despite a chorus of calls for him to step down — including from Democrats like Gov. Deval Patrick and House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo — and threats of expulsion, Henriquez has refused to abandon his position.
According to a Boston Herald report, Henriquez is continuing to conduct business from behind bars, speaking with his staff at least once a day.
Weve been in regular contact with him, and at this point hes concerned with the issues of the district, Henriquez aide Jessica DaSilva told the Herald, saying that he also has been reviewing budget amendments.
For Henriquez to be expelled from the legislature, the House Ethics Committee must make a recommendation to the House, which would then vote on it. Wednesday, Henriquez appeared before the House Ethics Committee in handcuffs.
Henriquez is appealing his conviction, according to the Boston Globe. His attorney is questioning the verdict due to the fact that the jury was all white.
Yeah nothing like a good beating to turn women on.
But he is against the evil republican war on women, so he’s practically a feminist.
“Yeah nothing like a good beating to turn women on.”
Well,,,,,,, maybe a little spanking,,,,,,,,, ...
I'm only guessing but the woman who refused sex and was beaten by an all black criminal probably has no objection to the jury being all white.
In my view the Mass. House can't throw the turkey out fast enough.
Living proof you get the Government you deserve. Him and the people of Massachusetts deserve each other
So his Attorney is acknowledging that black people think it is okay to beat up women.
I learned in grade school that the USA was a "melting pot" where all the cultures mixed together for the common good.
Now, it seems that the pot itself has melted while the ingredients remain intact.
This guy didn’t learn a thing from Fat Teddy. No witnesses!
He certainly is implying that, isn’t he.
A Republican who flirts with an adult intern got hounded out of office, but Democrats are safe for most anything
Bwaaa ha, ha ha ha ha! The jailbird Democrat is “concerned about the issues in his district”! Most troubling to him is not men beating women over sex, I’m guessing.
The entertainment value of Democrats is endless! Oh, and the dumb broad dating a dem? Put some ice on it!
Looks to me like they can't turn him out at all.
Well they can but I wouldn’t lay money that they will.
Wasn’t his entire issue dealing with his “staff”?
Yep, he’s been well schooled by other Rats and the likes of Rangel, Sharpton and Jackson.
He picked the wrong woman to beat on:
