Democratic State Representative Ramon Perez brought handouts to a House Finance Committee meeting at the Rhode Island State House. Unbeknownst to him, the handouts contained a screen shot of a browser, one tab of which was open to a “teen” porn site, the Providence Journal reported.

Perez 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 screen shot at 2:07 a.m. did not realize they still had browser tabs open to porn sites that would be visible.

When he noticed 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.”

When 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.

Riiiiight. The old blame it on a friend line. We’ve never heard that one before.
