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.

“This happened on MONDAY???!!!”

Not to worry. According to Swamp Thing's lawyer aggravated DWI is just a "traffic violation'.

Paging MADD....

12:30 AM on Monday. So he was getting plastered on Sunday night.

It's a coverup, pure and simple. Only 2 media outlets in the entire U.S. have reported Sid Blumenthal's arrest.

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

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.

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...?

Ah, but we're talking about Swamp Thing here, not just any flying monkey.

Would've loved to have been a fly on the wall, though, when Hillie found out...
