GOP legislator busted for pot after saying Democrats cater to gay pot-smoking Guatemalan gamblers
by Jed Lewison
for Daily Kos.



Robert Watson, Republican Minority Leader
of the Rhode Island State House


~snip~
Earlier this year, Rhode Island House Minority Leader Robert A. Watson (R) garnered attention when he made insensitive remarks about the General Assemblys work at a meeting of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce. Watson stated, I suppose if youre a gay man from Guatemala who gambles and smokes pot, you probably think that were onto some good ideas here. He was quickly forced to apologize.
Yet last Friday Watsons bigoted comment took an ironic twist. The state lawmaker was pulled over at a routine police checkpoint in East Haven, Connecticut. Police quickly arrested him when he appeared to be driving under the influence and possessing marijuana.
