Krusty Konservative: Kevin McCarthy's night court comments come true

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

It seems that the police report from Rep. Kerry Burt's arrest is creating more questions than providing his constituents answers about what really happened early Wednesday morning. Even personal information that is typically released has been blacked out. Charlotte Eby has the story here: http://www.wcfcourier.com/articles/2009/02/13/news/local/doc49946cf8d50a5168299181.txt. In Eby's story the Ankeny Police Captain said, "Let me put it to you like this, we took an accident report, but I cannot put Kerry Burt behind the wheel at the accident, OK?" So, I know this sounds ridiculous, but I can't specifically say that he was driving at the time of an accident. However, I can say that when our officers stopped Mr. Burt, that he was driving and we are -– as a result of our investigation -- charging him with operating while under the influence of alcohol." I think people need a little more than the generic apology that Burt issued yesterday when he said, "I will work to assure that I never have a similar incident." Maybe he was still hung over, but that sentence doesn't really make sense.
