Conservative Republican Senator Michael Crapo (R-ID) was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning after failing a roadside sobriety test. Crapo, a Mormon, has stated publicly that he abstains from alcohol.
I am deeply sorry for the actions that resulted in this circumstance. I made a mistake for which I apologize to my family, my Idaho constituents and any others who have put their trust in me. I accept total responsibility and will deal with whatever penalty comes my way in this matter. I will also undertake measures to ensure that this circumstance is never repeated.
Who the hell says “I am deeply sorry for the actions that resulted in this circumstance” anyway? A guy who probably isn’t going to have a political career for much longer, that’s who. Crapo, indeed.
