Now, Blumenthal himself faces charges of driving drunk. Blumenthal, an unpaid senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s 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. “He’s 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.

If I were Squid, I'd drink to forget I'm Squid.

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".

Why is this in Newsweek? Was Eleanor Cliff there? Did she get Squid drunk and force herself on him?

That would make you want to drink and go fast looking for a brick wall...

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.

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?

Sid Vicious shoulda resisted arrest so they could have pounded his smirking face into the ground. Maybe he was a “perfect gentleman” in cooperating with the police, but otherwise he is a perfect scumbag. If this were Karl Rove or any “senior campaign adviser” to any prominent Republican campaign the media would go nuts with it..... since it is a vicious Clintonista he’ll probably be allowed to slither away quietly.

I checked The Smoking Gun site, but all they had was an old report about Drudge claiming Blumenthal had an outstanding complaint involving spousal abuse (a claim that Drudge later retracted).

Of course, TSG leans hard left, so they likely will turn a deaf (and dumb) eye on this one as well...

Let hope The Smoking Gun posts the arrest documents. Just think if this was a 20 year senior republican adviser...CNN, ACB, CBC, NBC.....would have had it hourly for the past 4 days, including all day long in New Hampshire the day of the primary. Interesting that it was picked up by Drudge from a blog post at Newsweek. Anyone see it ANYWHERE ELSE. I didn’t!

This would have been a HUGE story but somehow it wasn’t posted till 7:53 pm today. Gee tell me if that delay would have happened for a Conservative?

It probably helps ease the pain of having your testicles torn off.

As for Squid getting away with a slap on the wrist...after Sandy-pants Burglar, I doubt if any of the Clinton Criminals will ever do time. What good are 900 FBI files if you can't get a simple DWI "erased".

Anyone see it ANYWHERE ELSE.

Nothing on the 3 main media outlet Web sites in New Hampshire: Union Leader, Nashua Telegraph, or WMUR-TV.

Nothing on the Nashua NH Police Web site.

The police reports in the Nashua Telegraph are a month behind.

That's because Sid liked the cuffs. The police declined his request for a ball gag and a spanking.
