Actually, that's the odd part. Senators and Representatives routinely abuse that whole "privilege from arrest" bit in the constitution.

Was he drunk enough to forget that, or did he have too much integrity?

The privilege is a lot more narrow than a lot of people realize.

It isn't, "I'm a member of Congress, you can't arrest me."  It's, "I'm a member of Congress on my way to discharge my official duties, you can't arrest me on a misdemeanor charge."

In any case, I think the Senate might be in recess...which would render the clause inoperative.

Yeah.  That part got me, too.

The statement reads as if his DUI was the result of some procedural error and he's going to come up with a checklist to make sure that, in future, all "don't drink and drive" protocols are adhered to.

I went to school with a guy who had a similar last name. All the teasing really messes you up after a while and you become sort of a sociopath, which makes you perfect for politics. But eventually, the stress of acting normal just burns you out. My friend eventually killed himself.

Metaphors like this are used to give commentators varied definitions of a particular point over time.

There is no such thing as the 'fiscal cliff'
The media is referring to spending cuts and tax increases, and that's how it should be discussed.

Not through some form of metaphorical ephemeral pondering.

Why are they not letting the Bush tax cuts expire? I don't understand that. They were supposed to expire a long time ago, weren't they? I know if I'm broke, I look for new sources of income, not deprive myself of it. That would just be stupid.

Yeah, but if you don't get a new source of income, that will simply force you to cut spending out of your budget that much faster. Really, the fastest way to cut spending is to quit working entirely; you won't have a choice but to cut your spending at that point!

Enacting those tax cuts in the first place was a terrible idea, considering they launched a war a few months later.
Basically, it was like quitting your job, taking a job that pays a lot less, and then deciding you want to buy a bigger house.

We have a lot of infrastructure that needs repairing, and taking care of that would create jobs. I imagine a lot of those soldiers were trained to do specific jobs, so simply segue them into repairing infrastructure. According to the Infrastructure Report Card we couldn't come close to fixing everything that needs to be fixed with what we'd save, but at least we'd be doing something that desperately needs to be done while keeping the money right here at home, boosting the economy when they spend all of their money at home rather than spending at least some of it overseas. Besides, do we really need US soldiers skiing around the woods in Norway with the Home Guard in "training exercises"? What's wrong with the bases in Alaska? Do they no longer have snow in Alaska?

It simply makes no sense to me. Then again, having friends who are serving, or have served, I've been told "military intelligence" is probably the biggest oxymoron on the planet.

Well, yes... but "people" usually includes the arresting cops.

And I think neither DUI nor speeding rises to felony in Virginia, unless someone gets injured or for repeat offenses.

Still, there's several ways it could happen, even if it is unusual.

Serious Black: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Why are they not letting the Bush tax cuts expire? I don't understand that. They were supposed to expire a long time ago, weren't they? I know if I'm broke, I look for new sources of income, not deprive myself of it. That would just be stupid.

Yeah, but if you don't get a new source of income, that will simply force you to cut spending out of your budget that much faster. Really, the fastest way to cut spending is to quit working entirely; you won't have a choice but to cut your spending at that point!


Getting yourself thrown in the drunk tank is a pretty good start at that, you have to admit.

eraser8: It isn't, "I'm a member of Congress, you can't arrest me."  It's, "I'm a member of Congress on my way to discharge my official duties, you can't arrest me on a misdemeanor charge."


Yes they have to be on their way to or from a vote. The basic idea was so that back in the days before air travel, one state couldn't jam up another state's reps with bogus charges. Also so that one party couldn't jam up the other party with the same thing (like having the capitol police go after people for traffic offences).

That's the only time it applies though. So Larry Craig could have actually used it to get out of his gay hookup bust, because it ws just a misdemeanor and he actually was coming back from a vote, but in this case it wouldn't be useful.

However given that it seems most of congress has never actually read the Constitution... :P

Actually, that's the odd part. Senators and Representatives routinely abuse that whole "privilege from arrest" bit in the constitution.

Was he drunk enough to forget that, or did he have too much integrity?

Some Freeperland perspective on this:

Sounds like a set-up. They did the same to a legislator from New Jersey and now a cop is facing criminal charges for it.

Just because he failed a sobriety test does not indicate he was under the influence. I do not drink, nor use any narcotics, cold medicine nor any other medication which could impair my driving, but that does not mean I can pass a field sobriety test. Having been an LEO, I know the FST. Running a red light... hmm.. classic!

There is a "breach of the peace" exception to the congressional immunity clause. However, I do believe that drunk Democrats are considered a normal occurrence in Washington. Drunk Republicans constitutes a breach of the peace.

I won't get punished for cussing, I repent too damned fast.

In all seriousness, he's facing a minimum of being disfellowshipped (basically meaning he can't do anything in a church capacity for some time). Ignoring the public shame from being a Senator that's pulled over for DUI, he's also a former Bishop, which means he's a high priest, which means he's held to a higher standard. This is very bad for him from a church standpoint.
