Bored Florida State Senator caught viewing porn on Senate floor

Update 2: Porn-viewing senator gets ‘paneled‘ by Sean Hannity on Fox News

Update: Senator threatens reporter who caught him in the act

Oh this is just too much. Adam C. Smith at the St. Petersburg Times picks up a news report from a local Florida online news outlet that a State Senator, Mike Bennett, got caught viewing some porn that was reportedly e-mailed to him by a woman he knows during a Florida state Senate debate:

Sunshine State News reports that it captured video of Sen. Mike Bennett, R-Bradenton, “looking at pornographic material on his state-issued computer on the Senate floor.”…

via What was Sen. Mike Bennett looking at during Senate session?.

I’m not headlining this with the fact that Bennett is a Republican because he claimed that he “was just sitting there, bored as they were debating the abortion bill.”

I’m bored debating about abortion, too! Florida is in a middle of a massive economic crisis, and they’re finding new ways to restrict abortion? Like that’s going to fix anything.

Let’s give three cheers to Mike Bennett, hero Republican Senator of Florida, for offering us all a way to get through the mindless kulturkampf that our country can’t just grow up and get over.

  1. collapse expand

    wouldn’t measures restricting the number of additional Floridians generally be welcomed by elite Northeastern corridorians?

  2. collapse expand

    He got pr0n sent to him by a woman? Lucky dude..

    Of course, it could just be Farm Sluts redux:

  3. collapse expand

    If more men would spend their energies looking at porn there would be less need of abortions.

    About Me

    I'm waiting for the day when I can get the news directly into my brain. Until then, I'll be lit up by the electric glow of screens, chasing the latest breaking like the hopeless news junkie I am. Ever since the Encyclopaedia Britannica tried to launch a web portal ten years ago, I've seen many ends of the online news spectrum, from my time as a political news reporter for both RawStory.com and the Huffington Post to the better part of a year I spent running the late New York Sun's website. There have been a lot of other stops in between. Now I am your homepage editorial overlord. But I haven't let it go to my head. Yet.
