GOP accused of flip-flop on DUI issue

By Scott Finn
Staff writer

State Democrats are accusing Republicans of flip-flopping on two drunken driving bills that have become a central issue in the November election.

Republicans have criticized Democratic legislators who voted for the bills, which required the state to hold a hearing before taking away an alleged drunk drivers license, including someone who pled no contest in court instead of innocent or guilty.

But only one Republican delegate Ron Walters of Kanawha County actually voted against the drunken driving change all three times it came before him.

- advertisement -They voted for it before they voted against it, said Democratic strategist Mike Plante, echoing the infamous quote from former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass.

2. That wasn't a quote from Kerry. That was a quote from Republicans
about Kerry.
