Legislators validated!


Gov. Schweitzer’s comments about legislators drinking too much have been shown to be totally unfounded.

Ok, I promise my next post won’t be sarcastic.

  • Sorry, PW, but I can't be too upset with Shockley for this. For a bunch of stuff he's proposed and voted for over the years, yes. Of course, it's stupid, stupid, stupid — but he wasn't drunk (and it wasn't that long ago you could have an open container in your vehicle and not be violating the law). Now, I'm not condoning driving with a red beer in your hand, but …

  • I do the same thing every day, especially in the summer after getting off a hard day of tree work. Nothing better than having a cold beer on the way home. I do NOT agree with many of the senseless, draconian DUI laws. Now, it's simply become a contest to see who can introduce the goofiest bill regarding DUI. Shockley did nothing wrong. But I gotta wonder about the fifty dollar fine. The cops stopped three young workers that I know, and there was an open beer in the car. None of the would admit it was theirs, so they ALL got fines in the hundreds of dollars. Fifty bucks sounds more reasonable to me.

  • No, he wasn't drunk, and the any danger he posed would have been more by being distracted by having a drink than the alcohol in it. But come on – I've nothing against passengers having a few road beers (save that it's illegal) – but driving with a drink in hand (no matter how delicious) while also serving on the judiciary committee suggests that you haven't struck the right balance between common sense/respect for the law and fondness of alcohol.

  • This is the suitable blog for anyone who desires to seek out out about this topic. You notice a lot its almost onerous to argue with you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, simply nice!

  • Aw, this was a really nice post. In concept I wish to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and precise effort to make a very good article… however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and on no account seem to get something done.
