If found guilty, I’d say Robert A. Watson is one disgusting human being:

RI State Rep. Who Joked Of Pot-Smoking Immigrants Arrested On DUI Charge And Marijuana Possession:

A Rhode Island state lawmaker who once criticized the state Legislature by invoking the image of pot-smoking immigrants denies a DUI charge he received after being arrested for alleged marijuana possession, The Providence Journal reports. House Minority Leader Robert Watson was arrested Friday at a police checkpoint in East Haven, Conn.

The Journal says the police report alleged that the Republican lawmaker’s eyes were “extremely glassy and bloodshot” and that he smelled of alcoholic beverages as well as the “distinct odor of marijuana.”


Here’s part of a statement Watson released:

While confident I was a safe and sober operator, trace evidence of marijuana was discovered and I was charged with operating under the influence, a charge I vehemently deny,” Watson said in his statement.

Bets on how long before he resigns?  I give him 72 hours.
