Sen. Michael Crapo
Arrested on DUI Charge

ABC News, by Dean Schabner

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/23/2012 11:35:16 PM

Idaho Sen. Michael Crapo was arrested a charge of driving under the influence early today after he allegedly ran a red light in Alexandria, Va., police said. The Idaho Republican was arrested without incident after he failed a field sobriety test, Alexandria police spokesman Jody Donaldson told ABC News Radio. Crapo was released on a $1,000 bond, and has a court date scheduled for Jan. 4, 2013. Crapo released a statement apologizing for the incident. “I am deeply sorry for the actions that resulted in this circumstance,” Crapo said. “I made a mistake for which I apologize to my family,

Comments:
I will withhold my usual glib remarks to just say that there should never be a reason for someone in "high office" to get a DUI. Crapo, A Republican Senator from Idaho, should have enough paid staff to get him around, especially "parties." Inexcusable.

Take a cab home, just make sure you return it the next morning.

I´m curious if ABC gave this much attention to Saint Teddy when he killed Mary Jo?

So far, I haven´t heard that Crapo killed anyone and then lied to authorities to cover it up....

As a fellow Mormon, I think I´m safe in saying this will end Mr. Crapo´s political career. Probably for the best... although he campaigns as a conservative, he seems to have become part of the big, corrupt political machine. (He´ll retire and continue as part of the machine, collecting a sweet pension courtesy of the good taxpayers, while simultaneously lobbying... the standard career path.)

Nice to see that ABC mentions the party affiliation right away. I guess they´ll be doing that with democrats now too. Right?

As a fellow Idahoan this frustrates me. If you want to drink, get a sober driver but at least he didn´t kill anyone.

Didn´t mention his blood alcohol level. DUI is bad, but sounds like a borderline one, or they would have said he was totally wasted.

This is terrible, I agree. My heart goes out to all you good conservative Idahoans who will have to deal with this thing. Crapo´s timing really stinks. However, can I say it? #2 is right. And, pray tell, guess I missed the mug shot on Drudgereport and all the top of the hour FNC reporters announcing Sam Donaldson´s recent DUI? The media all so sensitive about a family´s privacy when it´s one of their media buds OR any Democrat? Sorry but I do feel better now.

If he was a drunken Democrat who left his mistress to drown, this wouldn´t be a big deal....

Sometimes, it really pays to be a Kennedy. When the Kennedys are too drunk to drive, the police just politely drive them home and the MFM say nothing more about it.

Only a Kennedy can drive drunk and not be arrested. Doesn´t anyone know that yet?

Perhaps the Senator could have told the cops he was on his way to vote like Patches did to see if that line worked for Republicans.

Why was he still in the DC area? The Senate is adjourned; he should be in Idaho.

Any of our politicians that hang around DC when they do not have to be there, should be replaced.

Note the different treatment for Patrick Kennedy´s drunk driving crash, where he wasn´t even given a sobriety test and an officer drove him home. He said he´d taken sleeping pills and the media obligingly printed his version (ABC News: "Kennedy´s Crash Highlights Dangers of Ambien")

#1 - Yes, many of us have had our brushes with drinking and the law. I took a cab home once and sure enough on the way home there was a police road block, but since it was a cab they just waved it past and I arrived home safely without incident.
This was actually a real surprise since I had never driven a cab before, I don´t know where I got it and now that it´s in my garage I don´t know what the heck to do with it. Need a cab...anyone?

New York - Naveed Shinwari hasn’t seen his wife in 26 months. He suspects it’s because he refused to become an informant for the FBI. (Snip) Filed on Tuesday night in the US district court for the southern district of New York, the case accuses the US attorney general, Eric Holder, the FBI director, James Comey, the homeland security secretary, Jeh Johnson, and two dozen FBI agents of creating an atmosphere in which Muslims who are not accused of wrongdoing are forbidden from flying, apparently as leverage to get them snitching on their communities. Their lawsuit seeks not only the plaintiffs’ removal from the no-fly list but also

Washington - The United States has decided to lift its hold on the delivery of 10 Apache attack helicopters to Egypt imposed last year after the military´s ouster of President Mohamed Mursi and an ensuing crackdown against protesters, the Pentagon said on Tuesday. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel informed his Egyptian counterpart, Colonel General Sedki Sobhi, of the decision in a call, saying the helicopters would support Egypt´s counterterrorism operations in the Sinai Peninsula, Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said. "The secretary noted that we believe these new helicopters will help the Egyptian government

Washington - US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel got a first-hand look at a life-size robot that resembles Hollywood´s "Terminator," the latest experiment by the Pentagon´s hi-tech researchers. But unlike the cinematic version, the hulking Atlas robot is designed not as a warrior but as a humanitarian machine that would rescue victims in the rubble of a natural disaster, officials said on Tuesday. The 6-foot-2-inch (187 centimeters) Atlas is one of the entrants in a contest designed to produce a man-like life-saver machine, the brainchild of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Manama - A Bahraini court has sentenced 12 men to life in prison for spying, receiving training from Iran´s Revolutionary Guard and processing weapons and explosives, a defence lawyer and rights activist said on Tuesday. Bahrain accuses Shi´ite power Iran of fuelling unrest in the country since a 2011 uprising led by the Shi´ite Muslim community demanding reforms and more share in running the kingdom ruled by the Sunni Muslim al-Khalifa dynasty. Tehran denies the accusation, but defends the cause of Bahrain´s Shi´ite opposition. Attorney Fatima al-Adraj said the court convicted the men on Sunday, and sentenced two others to

Washington - The administration of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has admitted to conducting a political reshuffle within the atomic energy agency in an effort to mute officials opposed to negotiations with the West over the country’s nuclear program. In a statement issued on Monday, a spokesman for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization said that “a limited number of people were concerned, and they were neither scientists nor were they fired.” The statement was made after rumors of widespread dismissals proliferated on local websites last week. Rouhani and his nuclear negotiators are under intense pressure from Islamic hardliners

Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s fierce defense of the affirmative action efforts such as the ones that helped move her from a Bronx housing project to the upper echelons of American law found renewed voice Tuesday in an impassioned dissent that accused colleagues of trying to “wish away” racial inequality — and drew a tart response from Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. In her most personal moment in 41 /2 years on the court, Sotomayor read part of her dissent from the bench to emphasize her disagreement with six colleagues who upheld Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning the consideration of race in public university admissions.

General Motors moved on Tuesday to prevent future safety lapses by expanding its oversight of problematic vehicles even as the automaker continued to take an aggressive legal posture in dealing with its past missteps. (Snip) The legal filing, which was made late Monday in the Federal Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, asked the judge who approved the company’s 2009 restructuring agreement to explicitly enforce a provision that shielded the “new” company from liability for incidents that took place before July 10, 2009, the day the agreement went into effect. Most of the cars in the recall were manufactured before

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
