State Rep. Wood hardly first legislator with a DUI

Just look at who else has done this, according to Political Capital:

“In the past five years, Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker, D-Weston; Sen. Mike Ellis, R-Neenah; Rep. Jason Fields, D-Milwaukee; Rep. David Travis, D-Waunakee; and Rep. Frank Boyle, D-Superior, were all tabbed for drunken driving. Railroad commissioner Roger Breske has a DUI.

What kind of message does it send when so many of the people supposedly entrusted with crafting our state’s law can’t seem to drive sober? And which should become lower, my regard for much of the Wisconsin legislature, or the drinking culture which they are upholding? They’re lucky they just got pulled over and ticketed. They’re very lucky that they didn’t permanently smash anyone’s lives thanks to their own stupidity.

I am a resident of the Bay View neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and a member of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors. That sometimes comes up on here, as it's kind of a small part of my life. No official county business happens here. I'm mostly using this now to give a rough draft account of how we're dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. God help us all.
