Representative Hale Defends Drunk Driving

Just when you can’t imagine that the GOP majority in the House will say something worse, those crafty devils come along and outdo each other. It’s almost like they’re playing a game, presumably a drinking game.

Congratulations, Representative Hale—you are no doubt in the lead. And a special congratulations to the voters of HD 77, who chose this person to represent them instead of a thoughtful, intelligent and literate woman who would have stood up for them rather than the rights of drunk drivers.

Well done.

Update: John Adams has more background about this unique legislator.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
