Wow, now we are getting somewhere...the nitty gritty of the lives of the rich and famous. That's what you have to expect when running for high office...or even low office...
I know my foes spent a lot of time investigating me when I got into politics, but for some reason there were no arrests, judgments, defaults, love children, or even overdue library books. I can just imagine how much poking around goes on in a race for Congress.
There's not much you can do with a bad incident except to fess up, apologize and promise to do better next time....I hope he doesn't insist on making his cuff time into a teachable moment. We all can figure out what happened.
There are bodies of water in the Nation's Capital where you can get in trouble...Remember Wilbur Mills and the Tidal Basin. But I guess we can take Mr Doheny at his word and I am sure he feels bad about what happened. The tough thing about being a forty year old candidate as opposed to a sixty year old is that the indescretions are years in the past instead of decades.
Now, as for the other offense, and that is not having sufficient PFD's on board. My boating days are in the past but I believe in wearing one and in fact the time I was rescued by the same Coast Guard, my passenger and I were both wearing them even though it was broad daylight and we had not been drinking. I was just a lousy sailor.
