Republican Congressman Arrested for Drunk Driving
Rep. Vito J. Fossella (R-N.Y.) was arrested overnight in Alexandria and charged with driving while intoxicated, court records showed today.
Fossella is scheduled to appear in Alexandria General District Court on May 12 for an advisement hearing, the records said.
No other details were immediately available.
Reached by phone, Fossella's communication director had no immediate comment on the report.
Shocking, I know.
Vito Fossella also happens to be a pro-war Bush Republican with several corruption allegations. He has flip-flopped on privatizing Social Security (saying what people want to hear him say), and has voted with Bush on almost every vote in Congress. Cheney routinely comes to NYC to fundraise for Fossella. Needless to say, as a New York Democrat, Fossella is one of my top targets for defeat.
You can help defeat this drunken Bush Republican by donating to his Democratic opponent, Steve Harrison. I know Steve. He is an upright kind of guy. Steve (who I know personally) defends the term Liberal as a patriotic term and is one of the candidates who is pushing the “Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq.” You can donate to Steve through my New York State Act Blue Site.
