Please, please, please run this guy against Jessica King in November. Just when you think the gift can't give anymore, it finds new ways to entertain.
Former state Sen. Randy Hopper claims that politics played a role in his drunken driving arrest in Fond du Lac County following a Packers game last fall.
Hopper got on the stand Thursday morning on the first day of his two-day trial and said his vote to eliminate collective bargaining for most state employees was the catalyst for numerous threats aimed at him.
"The day everything broke loose in Madison I had members of the union in my office who said, 'If you don't support us, we are going to destroy your life,'" Hopper said. "'We're going to picket your kids' schools, we're going to tear apart your reputation, we're going to have you recalled.'"
Reading further, you'll discover that Hopper's arrest was a conspiracy not only among police officers, but also by the individuals driving behind Hopper who reported his driving as reckless.
I suspect we will soon hear about the bartender who was slipping Everclear into Hopper's beer to juice up the alcohol content, and the DOT officials that designed the road to swerve left and right when ex-GOP senators drive over it.
