Drunk Liebercrat busted for DWI

Oh, how nice. I knew this photo would come in handy one day...

Do you remember the "simple question" I asked Connecticut lawmakers regarding whether or not they will support the winner of the Democratic primary back during the summer?

Well, there were two closet Libercrats who continously dodged the answering the simple question: our favorite State Senator Bill "the liar" Finch and 92nd State Rep. and Assistant Majority Leader Pat "Kiss me, I'm Irish" Dillon.

Why do I bring this up you ask? Well, it seems like the proud Irish Liebercrat had a bit too much to drink and got into trouble.
New Haven State Rep. Patricia A. Dillon has issued an apology for her recent drunken driving arrest.

Dillon, an assistant Democratic majority leader, was charged Wednesday night with driving under the influence and driving fast on Derby Avenue near the West Haven/Orange town line, police said.

She was released on a promise to appear in court.
Now, I've never heard a police officer say this about someone who was drunk driving...
"She was over the legal (blood-alcohol content) limit, but she wasn't blind drunk or anything like that," said police spokesman Officer Angelo Moscato.
Hmm, I always thouht drunk driving mean...drunk driving. Anyway, lets see what Dillon had to say for herself.
"I am profoundly sorry for the lack of judgment and good sense which led to my recent arrest for DWI," Dillon said Friday.

Dillon said her arrest is her first offense in 40 years of driving, but "it is a warning sign that must be taken seriously."

Dillon said that she intends to participate in an alcohol education program provided by the courts.
Getting your first offense in 40 years doesn't mean it's the first time you got behind a wheel drunk...it's probably just the first time you were caught.
