Lawmaker Joe Morrissey claims he’s being framed for having sex with a 17-year-old employee
Virginia House delegate Joe Morrissey shocked viewers by dropping an F-bomb on live television.
“OMG, I just f–ked my boss,” he blurted out during a press conference Tuesday that was carried live on WTVR CBS 6 in Richmond.
The lawmaker and attorney, who’s accused of having sex with a 17-year-old receptionist for his firm, had gathered the press to refute the allegations. Morrissey, who claims he’s being framed, was reading text messages he said would prove his innocence. Instead, he brought further attention to his bad judgment.
The unsuspecting local station was carrying the statement live, but quickly cut the feed and apologized for airing Morrissey’s NSFW comments.
Morrissey remains out on a $50,000 bond. He’s charged with four felonies and a misdemeanor. A trial date has not been set.
