How embarrassing. A Massachusetts low-information legislator is now appearing at the Bay State’s capitol building in handcuffs to testify at hearings.
Who is this Democrat state representative and why is he in cuffs?
His name is Carlos Henriquez.
He’s in cuffs following his conviction for beating the snot out of his then-girlfriend in July 2012.
Democrat inmate lawmaker Rep. Carlos Henriquez is steadfastly refusing to resign his seat, and he is doggedly holding onto his job, trying to execute it from his jail cell while he serves a 6-month jail term – for beating the snot out of that former girlfriend.
The sweet irony here is that Democrat inmate lawmaker Rep. Carlos Henriquez has a been an ardent supporter of the Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence. We think we know why. It’s self-interest as he doesn’t want people in general, and his dating pool of single ladies in particular, to have the means to defend themselves from violent perpetrators like him.
The irony is extra rich as he had the audacity to appear at a Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence event late last year, while his trial was pending following his July 2012 arrest on the domestic violence charge.
