Just in, the e-mail box.

Scott Wilk had worked as a staffer for Tom McClintock for a number of years.

A favorite of California conservatives and Tea Party activists, Tom McClintock’s support for Scott Wilk, lends considerable conservative cred to Wilk’s campaign.

AD-48: California Assemblyman Roger Hernandez Arrested for Suspicion of Drunk Driving

Not a good development for a budding politician.

A state lawmaker was arrested this week for suspicion of drunk driving, he said this morning.

Assemblyman Roger Hernandez, D-West Covina, said he had been visiting a friend in the Bay Area Monday night when he was approached by Concord police in his hotel parking lot early Tuesday morning.

“After dinner I had a couple of drinks and because of the late hour I decided to stay in the town of Concord,” Hernandez said.

He said police followed him into his hotel parking lot, told him he had failed to signal when he made the turn and administered a field sobriety test. Hernandez said he refused a breathalyzer test.

“I told them I didn’t believe that was necessary. I’d only had a couple of drinks and I had safely, without putting anybody in danger, made my (way) to the hotel,” he said this morning.

Hernandez said he was arrested, booked on suspicion of driving under the influence and “was kept for several hours.”

He subsequently gave blood and is awaiting results of that test. “At this point there is no proof that I tested above the legal limit,” he said.

I guess we will await the sobriety test.

But, I do not see why these POLS insist on driving at all after having a few beers or glasses of wine.
