Massachussetts Pol 'Pulls a Weiner'

A state representative in Massachussetts is being investigated after allegedly sending pictures of his genitals to a government computer.

The investigation is ongoing and the committee has not formally reprimanded the individual in charge, but it is being widely reported that Democratic State Representative John Fresolo is the one behind the scandal.
He allegedly sent ‘lascivious photos of his privates’ to a computer at the State House, and an aide complained to the Ethics Committee to start the investigation.
Really?  You thought it was a good idea to send the object of your affection pictures of your man parts by email? I thought Democrats were supposed to know all about how women think, and unlike men, women tend not to be visually oriented when it comes to sex.  But, then again it doesn't specifically claim that the recipient was a woman, does it?
House Speaker Robert DeLeo has not confirmed any accusations in the case except that he did say there was ‘sufficient cause’ for an investigation.

‘In order to protect the integrity of the Ethics Committee investigation, Speaker DeLeo will have no further comment on this matter,’ spokesman Seth Gitell said. . . .
(“You reporters need to stop asking so many questions! Can’t you see we’re busy orchestrating a cover-up here?”)
That last from Stacy McCain.   John Fresolo is apparently a heckuva nice guy, too:
In 2005 he reportedly physically abused his then-13-year-old daughter, and that came nearly a decade after he was arrested for beating his then-wife in 1996. She later dropped the charges.

Blogger Michele McPhee reports that he is now on paid administrative leave, which is allegedly angering his colleagues.
The usual logic used to excuse democratic misconduct is that because democrats don't profess to  "family values", it's of no significance when they violate those values;  I guess that extends to sexual harassment and abuse too, now.
