No broom

The aide was Ronald Bell. He admitted guilt and got a year probation, 45-day license suspension and an alcohol program. For first offenders, that's stiff by MA standards.

Also, he had made about $98K in Patrick's administration and ended up doing work for Lawrence's bad mayor. That's its own punishment I suppose.

I almost have to laugh

My Significant Other Emerita was recently arrested for DUI in Arizona (she blew a .08 on the button). First offense. For her troubles, she spent nine days in the Hotel Arpaio, 30 days house arrest, 2 years probation, I don't remember how much in fines, lost her license for a year, and has to go to group therapy (which made her ask if she could trade that for more jail time... group is apparently that bad).

By comparison, MA seems almost to encourage the practice.

I thought he was being charged with assault and battery, & witness intimidation? I was unaware of drunk driving charge. What a wonderful state rep, that Carlos. Kidnapping girlfriend and removing her phone's sim card so she could not call anyone.
