More from the “Genius Politicians and Their Libidos” File
The sponsor of an Ohio bill which restricts access to the ballot box was arrested back in April on drunk driving charges while he had a 26-year-old woman in his car and Viagra in his system, according to police reports.
On April 23, an Indiana state trooper pulled Rep. Robert Mecklenborg over for a burned out headlight on a 2004 Lexus he was driving. After failing three separate field sobriety tests, Mecklenborg allegedly refused to take a breath test and was placed under arrest. A blood test later revealed that he had recently taken a Viagra.
First: since when do police drug tests check for Viagra?
Second: yes, he is married and the 26 year-old allegedly has connections to a strip club near the site of the arrest.
And an FYI: the Ohio voter ID bill in question only requires a photo ID, not a state-issued one, so if he should lose his driver’s license, he may not have to bother with getting state ID to vote.
