Lawmaker shows naked woman during school lecture

NORWALK, Ohio (AP) -- A state legislator surprised a high school class when the computer he was using projected a photo of a nude woman during a lecture on how a bill becomes a law.

State Rep. Matthew Barrett was giving a civics lesson Tuesday when he inserted a data memory stick into the school computer and the projected image of a topless woman appeared instead of the graphics presentation he had downloaded.

Police interviewed Barrett and school officials and seized the data memory stick and the computer to determine where the image came from, a state highway patrol spokesman said.

Barrett said there were a few snickers from the approximately 20 students in the senior government class at Norwalk High School when the image appeared. He said he immediately pulled the memory stick out of the computer.

The legislator said he finished his lecture using printouts and then met with the school's principal and technology staff, who examined the stick. He said the school's technology director determined the stick had a directory of nude images in addition to Barrett's presentation on civics lessons.

"I have no idea where these came from," the Democrat said.

Barrett said the data memory stick was a gift he received about three weeks ago from a legislative liaison from the state Library of Ohio.

I thought this was posted in the wrong forum and should have been posted in the hot deals section.

This is what's wrong with America -- there's no reason for the cops to get involved with this.

When I was in high school, a friend of mine was using a video tape for a presentation, and some of my friends swapped it with a porno, and nobody got in trouble. We also once sapped an essay he wrote on "To Kill a Mockingbird" with a phony one that talked about how Boo Radley molested Scout.

Come to think of it, we really weren't his friends.

Why did they call the cops in? They have better things to do with their time than to worry about some Dem showing boobies at a high school lecture. Though they probably thought there was some foul play - I'm sure it was his own porn.

It was just a topeless women pic for crying out loud. We all have boobies or have seen them before. I do guess the guy should be more careful where he stores his images. Sometimes I find them where they shouldnt be.

Yeah, that sounds like the proper response over a picture of boobies. People are getting waaaaay too uptight these days. :lol:

One of my profs had a screensaver that rotated through his images. And sure enough, A huge Full Monty Poster came up when the screensaver came up.

(1) Too many mentions of the word "stick" in that article
(2) I like how he just panicked and pulled out the jump drive
(3) No idea where that came from? Right...

If you are going to put porn and work on the same USB drive, at least be smart enough to password protect (or better yet encrypt) the porno files :lol:

but I will say, I had a manager once that was giving a presentation on how to use cc:mail and during the setup prior to the training taking place, he did a DIR command for some unknown reason (habit maybe?) and a few file names at the end of the directory were obviously porno pics XXX_girl.jpg and other similar names.

Only one or two people in the audience that were there early saw it and they kept asking him to put them on the screen. He was turning red, it was funny.

Now there is a 0 tolerance porn policy, one pic and you are fired for the exact reason posted in the article from the OP, so the shit doesn't accidentally come uP :)

Of course this guy uses the typical teenager caught with porn excuse: It wasn't mine!

Well, at least the kids know now how a bill becomes law.

How does the school have the 'right' to seize the memory stick ?? I'm assuming the computer was the schools..

And yeah, why the fuck were police called ? Of course the flip side of that will be that some of the parents will be outraged and sue the school....

Both boobs have to agree and then it slides right down the cleavage? That's what I got out of the lesson.

Perhaps, but it was a "senior government class" according to the article.

I think we are going to need to see the "offending" photos before we can pass judgement.

Shit, that is nothing. In high school, as a senior, I had a history class with this teacher. He had no kids, was married, so he spent all his money on travel. He took a ton of pictures, and converted them into slides. Every week we got a new slide show.

He'd take pics at topless beaches. He'd put those in there randomly, and be like "oops, how did that get in there?". Was good times.

I wonder if he got any other "gifts" from the liaison.

Does anyone remember the video from Europe(Sweden?) of that guy demonstrating something on the computer dealing with Web Safety and in the camera closeup of his screen you could see his History folder had all these links to "Naked Teens" and shit like that. :lol:

ERASE YOUR CACHE and CHECK YOUR MEMORY STICKS before doing public demos!! :lol:
