Should be investigated, I'm not sure how he could have ONE seizure and cause accidents in at least TWO different places pretty far apart. If it IS a medical condition, of course, he should be undergoing treatment. If he was under treatment but wasn't taking medication, let's say, he would be at fault.

Of course if he's lying and was just drunk or incompetent, lock him up.

If he had a seizure when he came out of it he would be all screwed up in the head and confused than someone who is drunk out of their mind. He would also likely have blinding headaches and just want to sleep. This confused state can last up to 30 minutes sometimes even longer. It has memory loss and all kinds of things. Also if he went to the hospital they will be able to tell that he had one, it wont be simply a question of do you believe him.

When I heard of this incident my first thought was that he was drunk out of his mind or had a seizure. They have eliminated his being drunk out of his mind.

The conservative American Crossroads super PAC has apologized for a tweet on the group’s Twitter account that suggested Bryson was drunk.“How does @CommerceSec have 3 car crashes in 5 minutes and alcohol NOT be involved??#Skills,” read the initial tweet, according to ABC News. That tweet was later deleted, and the group apologized:“Earlier Bryson tweet with hashtag #skills attempted levity (before facts known) and failed miserably. We took it down and regret the tweet.” Reports indicate Bryson passed a breathalyzer test.

That clown Louis "Gomer" Gohmert of Texas (R-Asshat) has openly questioned the accidents while exaggerating the importance of Bryson's job:

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/06/12/1099...

"You got Bryson out in California. It's really unusual to have a seizure to cause you to have one wreck and then cause you to put your car in gear and keep going until you have another wreck. That kind of seizure is really unusual. Yet that's who's in charge of keeping businesses going, a guy that crashes his car from car to car."

What seizures have to do with keeping businesses going none but Louis can say, but the implication's obviously there. What a tool.

I imagine it is the confused state he is in up to a half hour after the seizure that explains what happened. He was confused and did not know what he was doing.

What are some of these people suggesting? Do they think we should euthanize those who have seizures like the NATZI s did during WWII????

Your explanation is more logical.
