NASHUA A top Clinton adviser faces charges of aggravated driving while intoxicated after city police caught him speeding through Greeley Park a day before the state primary.
Sidney Blumenthal, longtime friend and senior adviser to presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y. was allegedly driving a rented car north on Concord Street at a speed of 70 mph when Nashua Police Sgt. Mike Masella decided to stop it at about 12:30 a.m. Monday.
Blumenthal was arrested after completing the test and taken to the police department where he refused to take a breath test and was booked on a charge of aggravated driving while intoxicated, Masella said.

Thank you for the inside view.
I am very surprised, though, that telephone call wasn't made. This is one of the most prominent men in the U.S. on the eve of a very widely watched political event in which he was a very active participant.
When you’re around these politicians all the time, it’s no big deal. The only one who I really enjoyed seeing and protecting was Reagan. The Bushes, especially 41, are decent and authentic men.
These guys are a dime a dozen at primary time. The news coverage makes them seem larger than life, but up close, they’re not much different than the small-time politician running for city council.
Bad Swamp Thing!
refusing was the smart thing to do, however he should have refused the roadside exercises too. (they are legally not tests)
That said, it will be interesting if this dirty tricks opperative will be out of commission.
“he refused to take a breath test”
Sid: “Don’t you know who I am?”
-where I live NO ONE would cooperate with the press -they are the enemy. They make everyone they interview look stupid, backwoods and incompetent. The MSM stinks.......we don’t bother with them. Everyone in town will hear this through the grapevine and it will be more accurate. Much more effiecient.
In my local newspaper, about twice a week, there is a listing of the arrests that all the agencies have made for the previous few days. Now, one would think that this listing is made available on a daily basis to the paper.
Question then becomes, is this information also available in Nashua?
“This happened on MONDAY???!!!”
Sandy Berger stole documents intended for the 9/11 Commission from the National Archives. You never read about that, either. These Washington people, both in politics and the press, take care of their own.
BEFORE the Primary???? That is disgusting!! If this had been a Republican it would be front page news!! Sid Vicious is one of the meanest, nastiest of the Clintons.
Not to worry. According to Swamp Thing's lawyer aggravated DWI is just a "traffic violation'.
Hows about it, Hillie? Is DWI just a traffic violation...?
TRYST?? Paying off Fraudulent Voters?? Getting names from the Cemetery???
If Obama were smart he would grabon to this and run -— List a littany of the arrests etc of the Clinton admin, and then talk about the arrest and ask “Do we really want 4 more years of scandal and police blotter reports?”
Just saw it reported on FNC as I write
You know this is a cover up....look how quick they got the story out on Giuliani’s SC campaign adviser when he got busted for coke.
And Blumenthal has more national prominence [sic]
Covering up for the HitlerBeast
All FOB’s are SOB’s.
Before he kills himself or, more likely, someone else.
SEXUAL ORIENTATION question?? Yikes.
And, per usual, it’s the cover up, not the crime.
I know what you mean- many of us no longer trust the MSM, and this story is a perfect example of the reason.
265-A:3 Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated.

I would expect that Hillary will ask for Sidney’s resignation from her campaign and for him to seek counseling for his alcohol and driving problem.
So what got Swamp Thing the aggravated charge? Going over 30 in excess of the speed limit? Or did he have a minor in the car with him...?
EVERYONE around the Clintons are DIRTY! Hopefully he will get some jail time....will he be a FELON if so?
Wow, there’s a lot about boats in there.... They must want to cover all the bases in case Teddy visits.
Would've loved to have been a fly on the wall, though, when Hillie found out...
From your keys to Bama's unusually large and prominent ears!
Maybe Sid’s hitting the sauce since he finally discovered that Hillary’s never going to leave Huma...
It’ll be interesting to see what Hillie does, won’t it, particularly in light of the aggravated part.
12:30 am in a park known for gay hook-ups. Hmm...
I wonder what Mother’s Against Drunk Drivers think about Hillary’s coverup of Sid’s arrest...
Hope this means she (who shall not be mentioned) loses the MADD vote.
Driving the opposite direction? To Hell I suppose.
Question for the coppers: Was a very impaired Swamp Thing really doing 70 down that street, or did you want to avoid listing the other reason for an aggravated DWI?
Blumenthal was arrested after completing the test and taken to the police department where he refused to take a breath test”
If I refused to take a breath test, I would automatically lose my license for a year.Will Sid?
How do you know that Greeley Park is known for Gay Hook-ups? Do you live around there? Or just a good guess about Sid.
Turn on the Pajama Patrol beacon!-FULL ALLERT!
LETS GET BUSY!
Because of your refusal to take an alcohol test your driver's license will be suspended for 180 days.
If convicted you will be fined a minimum of $500. Your drivers license will be revoked for a minimum of 1 year up to a maximum of 2 years.
That's assuming this webite and the articles are accurate and Swamp Thing has no prior history.
In any case, Swamp Thing's in some deep doo doo. Or oughta be...
Its easy for these things to slip through the cracks unless the department issues a press release or someone inside the department makes a phone call.”
Sidney Blumenthal? Hillary’s senior advisor?She who is in the news every day and night?
And henchman is a fitting chice of words...
I have always been suspicious about Sid, and when I saw the time of his arrest, I did a Google search and discovered that Greely Park is frequently used for gay pride events and as a cruising ground for gay sex.
70 in a 30. That’s very bad.

Possibly Sid’s next “outing” will be at Fort Marcy Park?
Jeez...do ya think he was within the distance from the school that if they found any...ahem...drugs on him, that it would be a felony?
