Connecticut state Rep. Ernest Hewett, D-New London, says he was punished without due process when he was removed as deputy speaker for making a lewd comment to a 17-year-old girl. The girl was speaking to the House Appropriations Committee, asking it to contine funding for the Connecticut Science Center's ambassador program. When the girl said taking part in the program had helped her overcome shyness and a fear of snakes, Hewett said "If you're bashful, I got a snake sitting under my desk here."
