U.S. Lawmaker Gives X-Rated Lesson

NORWALK, Ohio -- An Ohio state legislator surprised a high school class when the computer he was using projected a photo of a nude woman during a lecture on how a bill becomes a law.

State Representative Matthew Barrett was giving a U.S. government lesson Tuesday when he inserted a data memory stick into the school computer and the projected image of a topless woman appeared instead of the graphics presentation he had downloaded.

Police interviewed Barrett and school officials and seized the data memory stick and the computer to determine where the image came from, a state highway patrol spokesman said.

Barrett said there were a few snickers from the approximately 20 students in the senior government class at Norwalk High School when the image appeared.

"I have no idea where these came from," the Democrat said.

Barrett said the data memory stick was a gift from a legislative liaison from the state library of Ohio.
