MN GOP runs drunk for Gov
Sponsor of "Party" bill has two DWIs


In the era of the Internet, a mistake you made nearly 20 years ago may be just a click away from publicity.

That's what state Rep. Tom Emmer, R-Delano, was reminded over the weekend when his sorry-ass court records
of DWI charges filed against Emmer in 1991 were posted online. The blogger, Dusty Trice, said he had read about
a legislative bill that would delay revocation of licenses for suspected drunken drivers -- a measure sponsored by Emmer.

Trice said Sunday that he often looks through public records and meant "absolutely no malice toward Emmer."

Emmer, who was 30 at the time, pleaded guilty to careless driving, while two drunken-driving charges
and a license-plate charge were dropped. He also received a DWI-related ticket in 1981, when he was 20.

So, the dude like to party - behind the wheel of a multi-thousand pound car?

And he is the Minnesota GOP's best choice for Governor?

So, many points behind is the too-polite-to-mention-my-opponent's-arrest-record Democrat?

BTW, Minnesota, Calirfonia elected a "Party" governor, too  - how'd that work out for them?
