An uninformed Senator took a screenshot with porn tabs that are visible and went ahead to email it to prudes. It’s now evident that Democratic State Representative Ramon Perez has never read Esquire's rules for avoiding a public porn slip-up.
It indicated very clearly, "Double check your screenshots." However, that's not what Perez did this week when distributing printouts of a Wikipedia article. He brought handouts to a House Finance Committee meeting at the Rhode Island State House. Unknown to him, the handouts contained a screenshot of a browser, one tab of which was open to a "teen" porn site, the Providence Journal reported.
The Democratic State Rep was testifying before the committee about a car crash protection bill. He brought a screenshot of a Wikipedia article to support his points. But unfortunately, whoever was taking the screenshot at 2:07 a.m. did not realize they still had browser tabs open to porn sites that would be visible.
After noticing the error, Perez apologized on Facebook and said that someone else gave him the screen grab. He also submitted a corrected version of the article, sans porn, to the committee with his testimony.
"It was a mistake, and I recognize that," Perez told the Journal by phone. "My fault.” After being asked to name the person who allegedly gave him the screen grab, Perez declined to say. "I won't mention anything because it's my fault," he said.
