Do as I Say.... (Updated)

Don't you just love religious conservatives who lord their faith over others, but are hypocrites in their own personal lives? This fall, it was revealed that the ex-wife of "pro-life" Republican U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee had two abortions during their marriage, both with his consent.

Last night, Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), the devout Mormon who thinks that religious employers should be able to deny women birth control coverage and voted for anti-gay marriage amendment twice, was arrested for a DUI in Virginia.

So much for that no-alcohol thing.

LOL. Crapo even bragged about abstaining from alcohol.

Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo might seem like an unlikely person to be pushing a bill to cut federal taxes on small beer-makers: A member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he abstains from alcohol.

But Crapo's effort, with senators from Oregon, Massachusetts and Maine, illustrates the deep bond between Idaho Mormons and the beer industry.

Mormon farmers raise barley for Budweiser and Negra Modelo beers, and last year, Mormons in the Idaho Legislature helped kill a plan to raise beer and wine taxes to fund drug treatment, fearing it could hurt farmers.

What a bunch of hypocrites!

I'm guessing he means he will hire a driver from now on.

Hypocrite is he.

 

“I am deeply sorry for the actions that resulted in this circumstance,” Crapo said. “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 will undertake measures to ensure that this circumstance is never repeated?  Does he know what happened?  It's not like he lost a game of Risk, he was caught driving drunk.  Wow.  Talk about being in denial.  Merry freaking Christmas, congressman.  I look forward to reading your letter of resignation.

Ha is right. "he abstains from alcohol."

I guess he must mean he abstains from alcohol when he's not behind the wheel  of the car and is in church.

So I guess now that all the republicans will pounce on him and DEMAND that he resign his office.

I'm positive that will happen. 

Oh, wait, I'm sorry, I was wrong.  That only happens with Democrats.
