This is the same guy in bed with the MOGA as a major advocate for guaranteeing the NR tags, etc. Quality individual. From the article


Ellsworth was stopped May 23 between Townsend and Helena.

Court records say he got out of his car and brought up the state Constitution on his phone to show the trooper he could not be arrested because he was on his way to legislative business. His meeting was about 10 hours later, less than 30 miles away.”

Didn’t bother reading the article. How fast was he going? Seems everyone drives like a bat out of hell in that construction… glad it’s back up to 70 now.. meaning 95…

Article doesn’t mention the speed, which seems irrelevant really. If you’re speeding, then you’re speeding. And furthermore, don’t be a turd and try and pull rank like that invoking the state constitution when it doesn’t apply and threatening to call the attorney general on a cop doing his job.

And yet your fellow statesmen consider it better than the alternative:

Fireside?

This is a poem of mean truth and hard facts.

Internally, I feel a push/pull between wanting to kick a guy when he is down or giving him grace. The whole "he who is without sin casting the first stone" concept.

It's real tough though, because his behavior was so affirming to so many who always thought that's who he was or maybe even symbolized.

I'll leave it at that.

The truth about politicians is that we should not want ANY of the ones who actually WANT to get elected. We should have some sort of merit based draft to put folks in legislative positions for limited terms. Could you imagine if we had folks in office that simply wanted to promote the common good.........if only.........
