Rhode Island state rep posts screenshot with porn tabs

Good one Ramon

PROVIDENCE -- State Rep. Ramon Perez is apologizing after handing out a document to the House Finance Committee that showed open tabs on a computer with pornographic content.

The Providence Democrat brought the printout to a committee meeting Wednesday night, in which he testified on an automobile crash protection bill he sponsored. What he handed out was a screen grab of a Wikipedia entry for the Puerto Rico Automobile Accident Compensation Administration. Several open tabs were visible with titles that referenced obscene material.

One tab included the word “teen.” The screen grab was time stamped at 2:07 a.m.

On Friday, Perez took to Facebook to apologize, saying someone else sent him image, which he included in his post.

Reached by phone Friday evening, Perez said that he did not notice the words on the tabs before he shared the information.

“It was a mistake, and I recognize that,” he said, in an interview conducted in Spanish. “My fault.”

He asked rhetorically why he would have shared the screen grab publicly had he seen the words.

Asked who shared the information with him, Perez said, “I won’t mention anything, because it’s my fault,” adding that person was only trying to help him.

House spokesman Larry Berman confirmed that Perez gave the document to the clerk of the Finance Committee who made copies and distributed it to committee members. Once the words in the tabs were discovered, the clerk quickly collected the document.


Perez has since printed a version of the article that does not include the pornographic references and resubmitted it as testimony, Berman said.

State police hadn’t received any complaint about Perez’s post as of Friday afternoon, according to spokeswoman Laura Meade Kirk.

Perez is a first-term representative. He replaced former Rep. John Carnevale, who was forced off the ballot last year after failing to convince canvassers that he lived in his district.

Sorry, I misunderstood. Either he's deflecting or really pissed at whoever shared that with him.
