Ohio state legislator Matthew Barrett was supposed to give a group of high school seniors a civics presentation using PowerPoint slides he had prepared on how a bill becomes a law. What they got was an anatomy lesson when the computer he was using displayed the image of a topless woman.

The busty photo appeared shortly after Barrett inserted a memory stick into a school computer. He said there were several snickers from the 20 or so students in the senior government class at Norwalk High School.

The democratic lawmaker quickly removed the data stick and apologized. He told the Norwalk Reflector it was the first time he had done the presentation using PowerPoint and said he received the stick as a gift from an aide about three weeks earlier. Ohio State Police have taken custody of the device and computer to discover exactly where the image came from.

House democratic staffers later said the image had been downloaded by one of the legislator's four children. School officials in the future plan to screen class materials before guest speakers give presentations. ®
