A Democrat lawmaker in Rhode Island “unwittingly” shared a screengrab of Wikipedia, as well as some other interesting legislative items.
Ramon Perez, who was elected to the state’s House of Representatives last year, distributed a printout of a Wikipedia article during testimony last week. However, the file was actually a screenshot that showed not only the article but also numerous browser tabs open to pages with explicit titles. Two contained the word “teen” while one had the word “young.”
House spokesman Larry Berman told the Providence Journal that Perez had given the printout to the clerk of the Finance Committee, who copied and distributed it, then collected all the copies once the X-rated browser tabs were noticed.
“A friend sent me that picture with the information I was looking for,” he said. “I used that picture to make copies. I didn’t see the stuff at the top.”
Yeah, it was the representative’s “friend.” A friend whose name happens to be “Ray” Perez, and looks strikingly similar to Ramon Perez. I’d respect this clown more if he just came out and said, “Look, I’m a guy, and guys watch pr0n. It’s in our DNA.” Don’t lie about it, dude. It’s embarrassing.
