Rep. Hewett Missed Wednesday\’s House Session Due to Illness

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

Rep. Ernest Hewett, the man at the center of a controversy over comments he made to a 17-year-old during a public hearing last month, was absent from the chamber Wednesday.

While his colleagues were voting on important matters, including the appointment of judicial nominees and the establishment of a fund for Sandy Hook first-responders, Rep. Hewett, D-New London, was out due to illness, according to the official House Journal.

Rep. Edward Moukawsher, a Democrat from Groton who has defended Hewett, was also out sick.

    “While his colleagues were voting on important matters”

    Now I guess he’s irresponsible for not wanting to give his germs to the rest of the House, nevermind that four other colleagues of his were absent for the same reason. People really seem to have it out for this guy.

    This has the odor another Democrat cover up. This guy ought to RESIGN. What a creep.
