A tip of my Thinking Cap to David at Crooks and Liars for this:
I've included text because it's a long video but worth the time if you like seeing politicians handcuffed.
On Friday, the Dearborn County Prosecutor's Office released an embarrassing video of Republican Ohio State Rep. Robert Mecklenborg being stopped by police and failing a DUI test.
After failing the roadside sobriety test, a blood test showed the lawmaker had a .097 blood-alcohol level and had traces of Viagra in his system.
The 59-year-old married father of three also refused to explain why he had a 26-year-old female passenger in the car.
Reports indicated that the woman worked at a strip club in Lawrenceburg, IN -- just across the border from Cincinnati.
Mecklenborg is moving forward with a request that the Ohio Senate return next week to vote on a restrictive voter photo ID bill that he is sponsoring. It's one of the strictest in the country and thinking people are against. (We might have to do another recall petition if those idiots in Columbus pass it, And y'all we are pretty good at it!)
The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee noted that if the law is passed, Mecklenborg, who should have had his license confiscated at the time of his arrest, may be a victim of his own legislation.
If I'd been Mecklenberg, I'd have been nicer to the cop who tried very hard to give him a break. I just wonder what would have happened if he hadn't been across the border in Indiana, I suspect that it might gone down differently depending on where he was.
The irony is it was Good Friday -- and he's a family values Catholic! Hypocrisy thy name is GOP. And he'll prolly say he was just giving the poor girl a ride home.
And if y'all believe that, I have oceanfront property in Arizona for ya!
I don't think I have to tell y'all how I feel about this because y'all know.
