It deeply saddens me to read of the unjust and damaging comments made about Rep. Ernie Hewett. I have known Ernie for well over 35 years and have always found him to be a perfect gentleman, both kind and considerate. I am also disappointed in Reps. Bowles, Jutila, Urban and Ritter's interpretation of the remark to be one with a "sexual innuendo." I needed to read it over three times to fully understand their take on it.

Knowing Ernie so well, I am sure his only intention was to put the young lady at ease while she was the subject of being in the public eye in such an auspicious setting. Let's remember, "judge not and you will not be judged!"
