GOP Lawmaker In DWI Case Reportedly Blames Wife: 'You Know How Women Drive'

The top-ranking Republican in the New York State Assembly who was  arrested and accused of DWI  after crashing his state-owned SUV last week reportedly tried to blame his wife.

Brian Kolb was arrested on Dec. 31 after he  allegedly drove the SUV into a ditch  near his home. He initially told the tow truck driver that his wife was to blame.

“The male stood up and put his hands up and said, ‘My wife was driving!’” tow truck driver Michael Scoville told an Ontario County deputy, according to court documents obtained by USA Today. “He then said, ‘You know how women drive.’”

The tow truck driver said there was no one else near the vehicle. 

When police arrived at the scene, Kolb admitted he had been behind the wheel and said he drank four or five cocktails, Syracuse.com reported, citing the police report. Kolb’s eyes were reportedly glassy and bloodshot and his breathalyzer test showed he’d consumed  twice the legal limit  for alcohol. 

Kolb’s arrest occurred soon after he warned against drunk driving in his newspaper column.  

“There is no excuse for driving impaired this holiday season,” he wrote just a week before his own arrest.  

The events of December 31 are ones I will always regret ,” Kolb said in a statement last week. “I have begun the process of seeking professional help in order to heal, learn and fully address the challenges that I, along with my family, currently face.”

While Kolb has  stepped down  as the Assembly’s minority leader, he has not resigned.

To be fair, by tomorrow Trump will tweet about this like a 14 year old and make his position well known. Really this is just preemptive.

He will need a defense attorney and she should get a divorce attorney.

Legislators passed DWI laws and I like it when what they did catches them

He does truly exemplify many legislators in the current Republican party. Hypocritically lecture everyone else about not living up to their moral standards, get exposed not living up to their own moral standards, try to weasel out of the blame often by lying, then when caught red handed claim they just had a moment of weakness and will now get help to "heal, learn" and spend more time with their families.
