This shouldn't be funny......

.....but it is.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The image of a topless woman that popped up during a state legislator's computer presentation to a high school class had been downloaded by a child of the lawmaker, a state House staffer said Thursday.

The image of a topless woman was projected after Rep. Matthew Barrett inserted a data memory stick into the computer for a Tuesday lecture on how a bill becomes a law. He was speaking to an American government class of about 20 students in the northern Ohio city of Norwalk.

Preliminary results of a State Highway Patrol investigation found that one of Barrett's four children downloaded the embarrassing image, said a House Democratic staffer who spoke on condition of anonymity because the probe is ongoing.
Though she stopped short of identifying the youngster, House Democratic Leader Joyce Beatty said in a statement: "This situation is a matter between him (Barrett), his teenaged son and his family."

Can you imagine???? I bet the Dad is still beating his son.
