    A suspended drivers license, really , and how long ago did this happen, and for what. WHY,,,,,,,why was there no license, Should we have a cori now on politicians before we vote on them… this is so wrong in so many ways.,

    ENOM, Carefull what you wish for. We already have to do CORI checks on just about everyone for just about everything. Next thing you know we will have some kind of registry for just about everyone for just about everything. When is too much TOO much? (ENOM, fyi, most times I agree with you)

    Lori , I do understand what you are saying, But with the growing need to protect our children and now ourselves, We seem to be asking when DO things get checked. There has to be a need for some checks, you go to a job they do some checks on you , if you volenteer at places you get checked, If you have nothing to fear or hide its no big deal, I know there are folks out there that did some stupid things in their past and wish it gone, and if someone knew about it they would not be hired, or allowed to do much. Its a slippery slope. But at what cost do we not protect ourselves or our children. Its just spinning our of control people do not take responsibility for their own actions and know full well its wrong. This guy KNEW he was breaking the law, is this someone we want to respresnt the folks of that state, what message is he sending to others, Next we will allow a president that dealt drugs or commit fraud to run our country. JUST SAYING, EMOM
