News reports today indicate that Clinton advisor Sidney Blumenthal was arrested the day before the New Hampshire primary for drunk driving in Nashua, NH. The Clinton campaign declined comment other than to confirm that he was an advisor to the campaign.
Apparently, Sid was driving 70 mph in a 30 mph zone shortly after midnight and was trying to find his hotel-going in the opposite direction. He reportedly told the arresting officers he was lost. (No wonder Hillary welled up earlier when she told a group of women voters that the country was "going in the wrong direction".)
Blumenthal, a former reporter, left journalism to join the Clinton White House as a political advisor. Known by many as "Sid Vicious", Blumenthal enjoys a reputation as one of the Clinton camp's most obnoxious attack dogs. Undoubtedly, many political figures in Washington are drinking a toast tonight.
Book him Danno!
