Blumenthal On the Boil

Now, Blumenthal himself faces charges of driving drunk. Blumenthal, an unpaid senior adviser to Hillary Clintons presidential campaign, was arrested in Nashua on the eve of the New Hampshire primary and charged with aggravated DWI, according two members of the Nashua police force.
Sgt. Mike Masella, one of the arresting officers, said the movements of a Buick caught his eye. I observed all his erratic driving, Masella said. When I first noticed him it was at an intersection. He abruptly stopped. That caught my eye He was drifting in his lane. Masella followed the car, a rental, for a mile and a half, and clocked its speed at 70mph in a 30mph zone--more than twice the legal limit. Masella pulled the car over at 12:30 a.m. Monday morning. Blumenthal told the officer he was returning to his hotel from a restaurant in Manchester. After declining to take a Breathalyzer, Masella says, Blumenthal failed a field sobriety test. Blumenthal was handcuffed, booked, had his fingerprints taken and was held for four hours--standard operating procedure in such arrests in New Hampshire--before posting bail and being released. (He will be arraigned later this month.) Because the car was moving at excessive speeds, Blumenthal was given the more serious charge of aggravated DWI--which carries a mandatory sentence of at least three days behind bars. Hes charged with a serious crime, says Nashua Police Capt. Peter Segal, who will oversee the case as it moves toward a court date.
Gee, and how many stories are on the MSM about this?
Little story headline on drudge.

Hey Doc....any idea where Chris Lehane is?
A few years ago, he left a book signing at Politics and Prose in a Porsche that screamed "Middle Aged Crisis" and lead footed it out of there, tires screeching...
It was definitely a scene out of "Middle Aged Crazy" and I was waiting to hear Ann Margret scream, "Bingo".
Federal Witness Protection Program is my guess...
Do you mean Chris Lehanus?
ROFL....I have been waiting for that snake to surface.
That would make you want to drink and go fast looking for a brick wall...
Newsweak does the math for its lowest-common-denominator readership....
I don’t think Chris Lehane ever manged to purchase anything in the school lunchroom. He’s such an annoying twit that probably even Sister Mary Kathern stole his lunch money.
I’m thinking that Randi Rhodes from error America radio was hoisting a few with him!
Couldn’t have happened to a better guy. Throw the book at him.
One of the world’s nastiest, most vindictive A-holes on the planet.
His nickname is an insult to squids everywhere.
Isn’t the booking photo public info?
We need that for the FR fundraiser!
Is Chris the guy who John Edwards keeps refering to? The one with the cleft lip who can’t speak right?
This looks like about it. Google Blumenthal in Google news and you get this piece. Zip from any other source. Very curious.
MSM has buried this? OJ makes a lame comment to a bail bondsman and is whisked off cross-country to the slammer. We’ll hear about this 24x7 for the next week. Admittedly it is a technical violation of his bail conditions but did you read the message? Totally lame. But a Clinton adviser facing aggravated DWI gets buried?
