Mormon Senator Gets a DWI

         Police in northern Virginia bagged a US Senator for DWI, and a Mormon to boot.
Senator Michael Crapo of Idaho blew a .11. He had previously told the AP he doesn't drink, and a .11 is probably on the low side for a Senator.
        Senator Crapo quickly apologized, said he would deal with the consequences and had no further comment.
         The Senator is a Mormon, whose members profess not to drink alcohol. About 25% of Idaho is Mormon.

.11 in VA is drunk over age 21... the worst part of this story and one not uncommon: the shear hypocrisy of our officials in office ... they do it, and we only know it when/after they are caught...

"Wide-stance" former Sen. Larry Craig FYI. "Page-boy chaser" former Rep. Mark Foley, et al. The list is longer than we admit.

He had previously told the AP he doesn't drink,…”

So he’s a liar too, just like the pathological liar Mitt the Mormon… what a surprise.

How do we know he is a liar? Maybe he didn't drink at the time of his statement and he started since then?

I agree with you on this one, Dannie. But most of the criminals are from your side of the aisle.

So don't get too pious on us.
