Recently recalled + defeated WI state senator Randy Hopper was arrested for drunk driving after a Packers’ game. It must’ve been a “win” since it wasn’t a domestic violence incident. Regardless, he was definitely yelling “Kuhhhnn” at some point. His attorney is putting forth the following defense.
The Appleton Post Crescent reports, Hopper and his attorney Dennis Melowski are presenting a case that public employee union members in Fond du Lac County, the place he formerly represented and where he was arrested for alleged DUI, have been out to get him for his support of Gov. Scott Walker’s legislation eliminate most collective bargaining rights for public employees. (Police and firefighters were exempted.)
These powerful unions will do anything to fuck over their enemies – which is why Wisconsin public employees agreed to all economic concessions necessary to meet Scott Walker’s budget as long as they could retain their collective bargaining rights. Shared sacrifice, eh? haha. idiots.
Interestingly, though, Melowski did still say in court that Hopper drank as many as three and a half beers at a Green Bay Packers game on October 16, 2011, before driving home to Fond du Lac with his girlfriend, Valerie Cass.
Hopper explained that he refused to take a breathalyzer test at the county jail, because county employees had threatened him in the past. A preliminary test that jail staffers were able to take showed a blood alcohol content of 0.13%, above the 0.08% limit, but this is not admissible as evidence in the trial.
3.5? Pretty precise. (7+, amirite??)
A responsible person would’ve sobered up at the Oval Office (Green Bay’s finest gentlemen’s club) instead of selfishly getting on the road and alternating between Tim McGraw and Packers’ postgame for his listening pleasure.
or you can just blame organized labor. boo!
UPDATE: ACQUITTED! (on at least one charge) Bless his heart.
