Wisconsin Officials Under Alcohol Lobbies' Influence

Because we're the boozy (and only) state where a first-time-caught drunk driving arrest leads to a non-criminal ticket:

*  This is not a surprise:

Wisconsin lawmakers fail to act on drunken driving
*  Neither is this:
Repeat drunk drivers back on the road 
*  And certainly not this from WisDOT:
"Wisconsin has the highest rate of drunken driving in the nation." (But has a task force about it.)
*  Nor this today from, Madison:
Members of drunken driving task force resign, cite bar owner influence. More information from the Journal Sentinel.
*  Or this:
A traveling beer garden is hitting Milwaukee County
