From the Baltimore Sun:
Republican Del. Donald H. Dwyer Jr.’s political future is in question after he drunkenly piloted a speedboat that collided with another vessel and sent six people — including four children — to the hospital, political observers said Friday.
This year, Dwyer pledged to devote all of his energy to defeating Gov. Martin O’Malley’s bill to legalize same-sex marriage. The General Assembly approved the law, which opponents have petitioned to referendum in November.
Though combative on the House floor, Dwyer offered conciliatory words at the end of the emotional same-sex marriage debate.
“I know all of you expect me to get up here and go into a tirade,” he said on the House floor in February before casting his “no” vote. “I will be forever grateful to my friends on the other side of the issue who have extended their hand.”
He also expressed confidence in the referendum process, saying if voters accept the law, “Who am I to stand in the way?”
Who, indeed, are you, Mr. Dwyer? Maybe we’ll never know. But here’s what you are:
- a drunk
- a bigot
- a hypocrite
- a threat to society
and hopefully, soon:
