Connecticut State Sen. Beth Bye, D-West Hartford, who supports all things liberal, has the blogosphere ablaze with pictures showing her on her laptop computer logged in to Facebook, as citizens gave testimony at Monday’s hearing on gun violence at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford. While the public spoke, Bye seemed to be concerned with other matters. Bye is a member of the Connecticut Bipartisan Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety, which conducted the hearing.
Not surprisingly, nary a word about Bye’s apparent inattention in the state’s “paper of record,” the Hartford Courant. Could it be the newspaper’s editorial content is a major booster of Bye’s liberal agenda? You can bet, if this was a conservative Senator or Representative – and believe it or not there are a few in this deep blue state – the Courant would have posted the picture on its front page.
Some blogger’s, by the way, are urging people to email Bye about the picture at Bye@senatedems.ct.gov
