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!
