HYPOCRITE: Mormon GOP Senator Who Claims to ABSTAIN From Alcohol ARRESTED for DUI




How many times has Crappo been drunk while VOTING on important public issues?

This ReTHUG Hypocritter needs to resign!!! His judgement is impaired!





Idaho Sen. Michael Crapo is a strict social and fiscal conservative (whatever that means these days: Tax the poor, give corporations taxpayer money, and scream about loose women using contraception combined with bizarre beliefs about the female body). He’s a Mormon who has told the press that he doesn’t drink. And he was arrested for a DUI in Virginia early Sunday morning. The Senator ran a red light, prompting police to pull him over, whereupon he failed sobriety tests. His blood alcohol level was .11. (Virginia has strict DUI laws.) After being arrested, Crapo was released on a $1,000 bail. His license will probably be suspended for 7 days as per the law in Virginia.



Senator Crapo said in a statement to CBS News, “I am deeply sorry for the actions that resulted in this circumstance. I made a mistake for which I apologize to my family, my Idaho constituents and any others who have put their trust in me. I accept total responsibility and will deal with whatever penalty comes my way in this matter. I will also undertake measures to ensure that this circumstance is never repeated.”



Sure, you might be concerned that the Senator has abandoned his principles and values by drinking anything let alone being arrested for a DUI, but fear not. Crapo has a 0% rating from the HRC on gay rights, because while he’s obviously a bit confused about just how much booze one can drink before they’re too drunk to drive, he’s super clear that sexual orientation shouldn’t be protected in any way by the government. No rights for the gays! Social conservatives prefer to save up all of the rights for the “righteous”.



Crapo has also been really clear that we need to spend our money going after young girls who cross state lines to violate his religious beliefs by seeking an abortion. Yes, drinking and driving might kill other already-borns, but abortion, while legal, is not okay in Crapo’s eyes. He voted yes to increase funding for the “vigorous enforcement of a prohibition against taking minors across State lines in circumvention of laws requiring the involvement of parents in abortion decisions consistent with the Child Custody Protection Act.”

1. What can you say other than hypocrite and his whole world view is based on meanness

 

and the sci-fi Book of Mormon and the politcal and monetary clout therefrom.

Why the "O" on his last name?

9. That's what gets me about this type of person: Blithely continuing to write persecuting laws against

 

the same behavior they themselves routinely engage in.

4. Calling a cab would raise suspicions and confirm he was (possibly) over the legal limit.

6. Mormons are not supposed to drink or smoke

They can't even so much as have a cup of coffee. He's going to be in trouble with his Bishop. He'll be losing his temple recommend for a year, and have to earn it back.

Idaho's whole government is chock full of holier than thou hypocrites.

7. I agree but I don't give a hoot about HIS relationship with his church or bishop....

I am curious as to how many times he has been intoxicated while voting on issues affecting everyday people's lives? His judgement seems to be impaired and quite possibly, he's an alcoholic considering the RISK he took against his Mormon beliefs and community standing. Its NOT just HIS drinking thats at issue here,...its the deception against his family, church and fellow Mormons.....not to exclude the VOTERS he represents. HE LIED!

8. I say it's time to take revenge for some Breitbartings of the past.

Accept nothing less than an immediate resignation.

Throw that subhuman fuck out of the Senate!
