Mormons don’t drink alcohol. Well, not ALL Mormons that is -- as anti-gay, family values GOP Mormon Sen. Mike Crapo (ID) was arrested in Virginia early this morning and charged with driving while intoxicated with a .11 blood alcohol level, which is well above the legal limit at the time of his arrest.
“Sen. Crapo was identified as the driver and arrested after failing several field sobriety tests,” Donaldson said in a statement. “He was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Alexandria Adult Detention Center where he was released on a $1,000 unsecured bond.” Crapo released a statement through his office Sunday, saying: “I am deeply sorry for the actions that resulted in this circumstance. I made a mistake for which I apologize to my family, my Idaho constituents and any others who have put their trust in me. “I accept total responsibility and will deal with whatever penalty comes my way in this matter. I will also undertake measures to ensure that this circumstance is never repeated.”
I imagine he’s pronouncing his last name Oh-crap now.
