Jan "Drive Hammered, Get Nailed" Brewer: DUI Report Result of "Silly Season"

It's "silly season" in Brewer-land
​Governor Jan Brewer will appear on CNN tonight and give her explanation of the allegation that she was drunk when she crashed into the back of a mini-van in 1988. According to Jan, the news that she apparently got away with a DUI is the result of one thing: "Silly season."

If you're unfamiliar with the incident -- and the four field-sobriety tests Brewer failed miserably -- we got the police report. Check it out here.

Brewer feels that the only reason her wild ride is being brought up is because the election is just a few days away, and people are trying to get in their last licks before voters head to the polls.

 

"It's interesting that so much stuff rises to the top for whatever the reasons, but yeah it's the silly season, I think people are digging and trying to discredit different candidates, not only here in Arizona but certainly across Arizona," Brewer told CNN's John King in an interview set to air tonight.

As we pointed out yesterday, she's probably right about the timing of the allegation, but "silly season," or not, to write the story off as little more than a campaign gimmick is BS for a number of reason.

For starters, Brewer was never charged -- she never was even given a breathalyzer because she was a state senator at the time and was immune from prosecution. If your average citizen was acting the way the police report describes Brewer as acting after the wreck, they'd definitely be given a breathalyzer and probably receive an invite to spend some in Joe Arpaio's tents.

Not to mention, Brewer has a well-documented record of trying to throw the book at anyone convicted of a DUI.

From the Arizona Republic:

In the years since the crash, Brewer has acted repeatedly to increase penalties for DUI offenders.

As a state senator in 1990, she voted for House Bill 2433, which, among other provisions, required that drivers who were found to be under the influence have their licenses revoked. In 1993, she voted for House Bill 1003, which increased the minimum jail sentence for a first offense from 24 hours to 10 days.

This year, as governor, she signed Senate Bill 1420. The bill significantly increases penalties for juveniles who violate DUI laws.

The Republic didn't even mention Brewer's "Drive Hammered, Get Nailed" program, about which her administration frequently boasts.

It's not "silly season" that makes the story news, Jan -- it's hypocrisy.

Looking at her, listening to her, I'd bet she still hits the booze. Channel 12 just reported that one of the officers involved works for Brewer; another one works for Goddard. What are the odds that police officers involved in an incident 22 years ago would now be working for the candidates? Something smells here......

Ugh

Brewer is a moron. Of course the media digs into your personal life during election season. It's part of politics. If she can't understand that simple part of her job, I am terrified to know what else is above her head. Do us a favor Jan, next time you drive drunk, drive off a bridge. You don't deserve the position you hold now and won't deserve it if you win Nov. 2nd. You're a disgrace.

Another lame attempt to belittle our wonderful Governor. It was 1988, and she wasnt charged with a crime you dumbass. But what can we expect from a dope smoking, cock humping, semen sucking nimwit like James King? Nothing more. Nothing less. No news here Jimmy boy....take your toys and go play elsewhere.

At least she didnt drive her car into a river with a male hooker in along for the....ride.....and leave his ass to die by drowning. Now that, would be like.....manslaughter. But that dickhead wasn't charged with a crime either was he Jimmy? Try looking up Kennedy and his history retard.

Who do you think you are challanging our delightful soon-to-be governor on some ancient boozer event. You can't hardly blame her for wanting to be stoned, now can you ??? OK, fine, it's 1988 and the world is somewhat more defensibly asinine than it is today. The wrinkled Medussa gets her saggy ass tippled and goes for a cruise... Who of us can say they never did that ? And while that may be true, what most of us can say is that Nature provided us the basic physical skills one needs to go for a cruise WITHOUT SLAMMING INTO THE REAREND OF A STOPPED CAR !!! Jan is the State's most illustrious and most notorious resident, so that stupid mini-van was in the wrong for being in her way. Jan should have sued the driver. Had the van never existed, old wrinkle tits could have proceeded uninhibited, stewed to the gills, and at speed, straight into the intersection and crashed into the broadside of a '54 Bel Air full illegal Mexicans, and thereby ridding us of an entire car load of those interloping, welfare swiping, anchor baby dropping, drug smuggliing, gun running, cartel belonging to, and most likely decapitated, border beaners. YOU GO JAN... and don't let little things like moral responsibility and personal integrity stand in your way of hypocrisy, deception, nepotism, condescension, racism, mud slinging, fraud, poor driving habits, and headless beaners. And Jan, once you're the official first lady of AZ., do invite me to the mansion for a house warming. I'll bring the 5 gallon gas can for a real warmer upper. GOD BLESS THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF PHOENIX.

A recovering alcoholic Associate we know very well brought up a good point. He wrote,

"Brewski, ah, excuse me, Brewer "...crashed into the back of a mini-van in 1988." James and many others are digging up dirt from over twenty years ago. The Guv may have sobered up since then. Yes, the embarassing press conference is recent evidence that she may have relapsed, but there's no solid proof that booze/drugs caused the stuttering. Plus, if she gets back on track, she and we should be proud of her recovery, even if she is the ugliest Governor in history and has the IQ of a dead houseplant.

Me, I have been clean and sober for many years now, so my past behaviour does not reflect my changed character and lifestyle. Put politics aside and show the same tolerance and respect for Brewer. "

We know this Associate and he was one nasty prick when he was drunk. It's true that he does appear to be a very changed man, and his claims of long-term sobriety appear to be legitimate.
