Norwalk- A high school class expecting a lecture from a politician on how a bill becomes a law instead got an unexpected lesson in anatomy. An image of a topless woman appeared when State Rep. Matt Barrett inserted a memory stick into the computer and started his presentation Tuesday. Barrett, of Amherst, immediately stopped the presentation. "I have no idea where these came from," Barrett said. "It's an embarrassing situation." The State Highway Patrol later seized the school computer and the memory stick Barrett used. School officials said the images came from the memory stick, a thumb-sized device that carries digital files such as photos. The memory stick was a gift from a legislative liaison, Barrett said.
The memory stick contained the graphics for his presentation, Barrett said. The nude images were not there the day before when he plugged the stick into his home computer, he said.
Only a few of the 19 students at the presentation saw the images, said Wayne Babcanec, superintendent of Norwalk City Schools. Parents were notified but few were upset, Babcanec said. "I believe it was unintentional," he said. "[Barrett] was genuinely apologetic and embarrassed."
How stupid can you be? I guess he didn't think to proofread the contents of the memory drive before presenting to a group of kids. I bet Johnny Jerkoff knows exactly where those pics came from *skeet skeet*.
