Goes to show you the character of these liberal democrt politicians, never practicing what they preach. Shame on the people of Hawaii who voted this weasal liar into office.

Apparently he got credit for one day after spending 90 minuts when arrested. Then spent less that 24 hrs at OCCC before being released.

All I want to know is if all that is standard practice or if he got special treatment.

Doesn't anyone find it a little strange that the officer in question first said that he didn't take the test at the scene and now it looks like he did?

Can't trust anybody these days...

I never been caught DUI. Is this normal punishment? Or did he get a slap on the wrist?
This is pretty typical from what I've seen, except for the jail part. But if that's because of the minor, then I think that's appropriate.

I bet a lot of first timer offenders don't even spend an hour in jail. I think the 2 days will suffice for the DUI. For lying to all of us, to the police, for putting his kids in danger, and also putting the public in danger, come re-election time, this is when he will be punished. You can forgive, but you sometimes can't or shouldn't forget.
On the contrary I think they do since once they are arrested, where do you think they go to cool their heels and sober up?

Also, draw a distinction from the legal penalties and penalties of public opinion and on his career as an elected official...two different things.
