GOP Sen. Mike Crapo pleads guilty to DUI charge

Idaho Republican Mike Crapo was arrested last month and charged with driving under the influence after he failed a field sobriety test. Today, he entered a guilty plea and was sentenced to a $250 fine, one-year license suspension and 180 days suspended jail time.

Time for some oh-so-predictable bashing of Mormons and Republicans? You betcha!

Crapo has issued his apology via Twitter as well.

    Admitted it and took responsibility. Name a Dem who’s done that!

    • GaryTheBrave

      The Dems will DEMAND he step down.

    • BlueGood

      Well honestly, who wouldn’t drink to excess ocassionally with a surname like that???

      He’s probably still traumatized form the snarky jibes from grade school!

  • NachoCheese (D)

    GOP – apparently the party of LUSHES….


    Ted “let her drown” Kennedy was a Republican?

    • Randi Starr

      well, he had to walk around a few hours to clear his head, cough, cough.

  • BeyondPolls

    And Maxine Waters is still in Congress.

      As if we don’t know why……………………………..

      • BeyondPolls

        Why do you think, out of curiosity?

  • TocksNedlog

    Crapo pled ‘guilty’ and took his punishment like a man.
    Meanwhile, David Gregory still hasn’t turned himself in for violating D.C. weapons ban. @hidesbehindlawyers

  • LoriGirl

    • Randi Starr

      Because LoriGirl………….we’d have no one left if we ditched them all based on moral ideology or even legalities……………

    Therein lies the difference between a Liberal and a Conservative:

    A Liberal will apologize by saying, “I’m sorry IF you are offended,” whereas a Conservative will say, “I’m sorry THAT I offended you.”

    If you still fail to discern the huge difference between the two, here’s a hint: the former attempts to distance one’s self from his/her own actions, and put the blame on the offended party for being offended; the latter is about accepting personal responsibility for the offense.

    Sen. Crapo’s poor judgment notwithstanding, he has ‘manned up’ and will accept his bitter pill, and will hopefully learn from this. A Lib would rush to blame someone else — faster than Ted Kennedy at last call.
