State senator eyeballs smut during abortion debate

Topless beauties enliven 'boring' Florida session

Florida State Senator Mike Bennett was busted last Thursday eyeballing a bevvy of topless* beauties during an evidently dull debate on a "controversial abortion bill", Sunshine State News reports.

Rather splendidly, as cameras catch Bennett in flagrante delicto, fellow Senator Dan Gelber can be heard to protest: "I'm against this bill, because it disrespects too many women in the state of Florida."

Bennett later defended that the offending email had come from a woman who "happens to be a former court administrator".

He explained: "I was just sitting there, bored as they were debating the abortion bill. I opened it up and said holy [expletive]! What's on my screen? and clicked away from it right away."

Senate spokesperson Jaryn Emhof elaborated: "There was some confusion about an email he received. He thought it was an email about an item being debated on the Senate floor. As soon as he realized it wasn't he closed the page."

Sunshine State News isn't satisfied with this explanation, and notes Bennett also viewed a video of a mutt "running out of the water and shaking itself off". It asks: "It is unclear if he also thought that was an email about a bill being debated on the floor."

Bennett was offered the opportunity to show "the executive editor and videographer the email record with a government-related subject line, but after talking to the Senate's top lawyer, he declined to let us see those records". ®
