Senate president arrested on DWI charge


"Drunk Feckless Liberals"

and not the first time...remember this??

and we citizens wonder IF there's a double standard.one for the citizens and one for the lawmakers. I wish they could get fired for doing stuff like this.
It appears Minnesota has become a sanctuary state for drunken legislators. Maybe we need to deport some.

FYI: Dayton has been sober for almost 22 years. What you need to say is that our Governor is a **** for battling depression and having to take medication for it, but then I know several thousand US Soldiers, Marines, Sailors and Airmen who are also. Do you like pointing out peoples flaws who battle and overcome and addiction? Is Emmer better or worse because he was caught, charged and found guilty of driving under the influence? It takes a greater man to overcome and be strong than it does to point another flaws out. You are not that greater man.
You're clueless. Dayton has acknowledged falling off the wagon. Take one look at those googly eyes darting around and you can see symptons of pill popping as well.

Where is the headline that says, "Rep. Mark Buesgens is a drunkard and a homeless"? This guy was actually convicted for drunk driving, his lost his actual house to foreclosure!

But guess what? White media will NEVER write such headlines for white politicians...but that's exactly what the Pioneer Press do all the time with minority officials.

This may be some good fortune for Rep. Buesgens. If he is chemically dependent, he may have simply "slipped" and will be able to get back to sobriety. If he had continued drinking longer, then it would be a relapse and many disastrous things could have happened.

of all the hoopla regarding DWI in Minnesota!

Lawmakers routinely drink and drive while intoxicated, Rukavina, Buesgens, Emmer, Dayton, etc etc etc...

DWI is a non-issue!!

Just forget it..

Legalize drunk driving, IF it were legal there would be a flurry of DWI related deaths and then the drunks would all be dead and life would be simple.

Let the gene pool clean itself up.

Just one more example of "Having the right connections". We all know any ordinary citizen or one with a record for that matter would have gotten more than just a simple little warning.
