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?

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

GM to seek court protection
against ignition lawsuits

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Peshawar , Pakistan — The Pakistani Taliban said Wednesday that they were ending a six-week-old ceasefire but would continue peace talks with the Pakistani government. In a statement emailed to journalists, the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, as the group is formally known, accused the military of torturing prisoners and killing 50 militants during the ceasefire.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

The passenger, who has not been identified, said she made the enchilada over the weekend, and didn´t know how the knife got into the bag. She was questioned by Sonoma County Sheriff´s deputies, but then cleared to board her flight. Melendez says the TSA

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
