Nothing is more delicious than when a conservative is caught being a hypocritical piece of crap. It wouldn’t be so bad; however, Republicans claim to be the party of family values. Yet, they are humans. They are flawed, and they are very much known for not practicing what they preach. Stones and glass houses, right?
That was the case in Rhode Island after it was revealed a Republican state senator was arrested and charged with video voyeurism and extortion.
State Sen. Nicholas Kettle R-Coventry faced a weekend in jail and a combined sentence of over 30 years in prison.
WPRI Witness News described the video voyeurism law for Rhode Island.
‘According to the state’s video voyeurism law, it is a crime if a person “for the purpose of sexual arousal, gratification or stimulation … uses, installs or permits the use or installation of an imaging device to capture, record, store or transmit visual images of the intimate areas of another person without that other person’s knowledge and consent, and under circumstances in which that other person would have a reasonable expectation of privacy.’
So, basically, Kettle is charged with somehow obtaining images secretly of someone’s nibble bits. He’s also accused of sharing them with someone “out of state.”
An ex-girlfriend found pictures of herself on an iPad, which were shared with others.
Calls have been made for Kettle to resign including from Senate President Dominick Ruggerio.
‘It is deeply troubling that a member of the Senate has been indicted on charges of video voyeurism and extortion. Based on what we know at this time, I believe that Mr. Kettle should resign immediately.’
Another Republican also called for Kettle to resign. Senate Minority Leader Dennis Algiere commented:
‘Based upon what I’m reading and seeing and hearing, Senator Kettle should resign immediately.’
Of course, Kettle doesn’t plan to resign at this time. His lawyer claimed Kettle was scared to death of spending the weekend in jail.
‘He’s about 5’3″ weighs about 125 pounds soaking wet and a young 27 years old. He’s never been arrested, never been in trouble, he’s not a violent person. He’s terrified.’
Twenty-seven years old? Young? Black men and women are thrown in jail and prison at much earlier ages than 27-years-old for lesser offenses. That is if they aren’t shot to death first. Kettle, you’re going to be okay. Just don’t drop the soap.
