Too Ugly To Sexually Harrass?
Queens Democratic councilman Allan Jennings, on trial for sexual harrassment, brought out photos of his three female accusers in hopes of showing that they were to haggy to have interested him! Bryan Virasami reports in Newsday:

...Later when asked to define attractive, Jennings noted that Brooklyn Democrat Diana Reyna was the only female councilmember overseeing his trial who fit his idea of beauty.

"People were just like 'Give me a break. This is ridiculous.' It's totally irrelevant," said Councilman David Weprin, (D-Hollis).

The photos were not allowed into evidence, but the move nearly forced some members of the Standards and Ethics Committee out of their chairs.

I live in Queens, and I've been following that story... that guy sounds like a real jerk.
