Wisconsin Legislative Madness: Lighter Penalty For OWI Than Do-Not-Call Violation

The Senate will vote on a proposal to make a Do-Not-Call violation a $10,000 fine.

Most first-time OWI offenses will still be a ticket, under an Assembly proposal.

You don't think lobbyists have power, or that legislators are cowed by the drinking culture, but want to look like they are doing something?

James - with the Dems controlling everything in Madison you would think toughening up our pathetic OWI laws would be a no-brainer.

Guess the Democrats are as big of morally corrupt political prostitutes as the Republicans were when they controlled everything.

Their metaphorical pimps and johns are the ones calling the shots.

If you haven't figured it out yet, my cynicism and contempt for most politicians and government is deep and widespread.
