Improper Workplace Computer Usage

Florida state GOP Sen. Mike Bennett had some reporters watching him from the gallery as he perused a girly pic on the floor of the legislature. Via Sunshine State News:
On Thursday morning, Sunshine State News captured exclusive video of Sen. Mike Bennett, R-Bradenton, looking at pornographic material on his state-issued computer on the Senate floor. Ironically, as Bennett is viewing the material, you can hear a senator's voice in the background debating a controversial abortion bill. "I'm against this bill," said the voice, "because it disrespects too many women in the state of Florida." Bennett defended his actions, telling Sunshine State News it was an email sent to him by a woman "who happens to be a former court administrator." "I was just sitting there, bored as they were debating the abortion bill," Bennett said. "I opened it up and said holy [expletive]! What's on my screen? and clicked away from it right away." Sunshine State News could not verify how long the image of four bikini-clad women with their tops exposed was open before our cameras started rolling on it, but it was up for at least three seconds before it disappeared from the screen.
Reporters asked to see the supposed email with a government-related subject line that Bennett claimed was the source of the photo, but he refused.
