This explains why things are not kosher at the state legislature. The minority howls and the majority does what they want. Very sad. Put the bum in jail for a while so he can dry out!

We cannot have a person writing laws that does not obey the laws, especially when it endangers others like drunk driving. He should be EXPELLED!
