The “Bored” Senator

Posted on: May 6, 2010

Just recently a local news station filmed Republican politician Mike Bennett looking at a certain email that showed images that wouldn’t be what you want your Senator focusing on during a Senate meeting.  The Senator was looking at porn, a picture of four topless women. Although he says it was in an email from a past court administrator, and he quickly clicked away. If this is true,

He was bored...

then this whole thing has gone way out of proportion. The part that really rubs me the wrong way, however is what he says in response to being questioned about it. When being asked why he was looking on his email during a SENATE MEETING, he simply said he was “bored.” At the time, abortion was being discussed, and in particular the women’s right to have abortion. This happens to be one of the most argued topics in today’s politics, and this man was bored? I don’t know about anyone else, but I would much rather have someone in our senate who does not get bored at an important senate meeting.
