Montana GOP lawmaker defends drunk driving

Montana GOP Rep. and bar owner Alan Hale stands up to denounce DUI laws. All of them.

Said Hale: “These DUI laws are not doing our small businesses in our state any good at all. They are destroying them. They are destroying a way of life that has been in Montana for years and years. These taverns and bars in these smaller communities connect people together. They are the center of the communities. I’ll guarantee you there’s only two ways to get there: either you hitchhike, or you drive, and I promise you they’re not going to hitchhike.”

Just in case you weren’t absolutely sure that GOP lawmakers were about clearing the way for their wealthy friends (and themselves) to make money, even at the risk of people being hurt, injured or killed, well, there you go…

And I’m not EVEN going to comment on what he’s wearing.
