ReTHUG Idaho Sen. Crapo arrested in Va., charged with DUI

http://news.yahoo.com/idaho-sen-crapo-arrested-va-charged-dui-044439722.html
<snip>

Idaho Sen. Michael Crapo was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with driving under the influence in a Washington, D.C., suburb, authorities said.

Police in Alexandria, Va., said Sunday that the three-term Republican was pulled over after his vehicle ran a red light. Police spokesman Jody Donaldson said Crapo failed field sobriety tests and was arrested at about 12:45 a.m. He was transported to the Alexandria jail and released on an unsecured $1,000 bond at about 5 a.m.

"There was no refusal (to take blood alcohol tests), no accident, no injuries," Donaldson said. "Just a traffic stop that resulted in a DUI."

Police said Crapo, who was alone in his vehicle, registered a blood alcohol level of .11 percent. The legal limit in Virginia, which has strict drunken driving laws, is .08 percent.

Crapo is crap!! Another present to place under your DU trees!

1. So much for family values...why wasn't he back in his home state?

Instead, he's out gettin' drunk on a Saturday night, and ends up in the lockup till sunup on Sunday!

Was he out at a party, or out cattin' around? Hope someone in the DC media pulls that string....


On edit--my favorite bits from your link:

A Mormon who grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho, Crapo was named a bishop in the church at age 31. He is an attorney who graduated from Brigham Young University and Harvard Law School. He has five children with his wife, Susan, and three grandchildren.
The Mormon church prohibits the use of alcohol, as well as coffee, tea and other substances. About one-quarter of Idaho residents are Mormon.
Crapo has told The Associated Press in past interviews that he abstains from drinking alcohol.

Ha--so he's a liar, too!

3. Strict drunken driving laws? Are there states that don't have .08% laws?
