Calif DNC delegate sent home, drunk

Rate this post

The Democratic National Convention is a day away but, already, the freak show is in full display.

Two California delegates got drunk last night. One was so drunk, he passed out and was taken to a local hospital. The other delegate got unruly and was kicked out of the convention.

Joe Garofoli reports from Charlotte, NC, for the San Francisco Chronicle, Sept. 2, 2012:

A member of the California delegation to the Democratic National Convention has been sent home after a drunken late night incident Sunday at one of the delegation’s hotels.

Sometime around 2 a.m. Sunday, two delegates returned to the Blake Hotel “intoxicated” according to state party officials and hotel staff noticed one appeared to be unconscious and called emergency service workers. The delegate was treated at a local hospital and released.

The other delegate became unruly with the hotel staff and emergency workers. Some reports say he allegedly claimed to be a member of Congress and a state party official. The hotel staff called police but the man was not arrested.

Later Sunday, California party officials met with the man and “asked him to leave the hotel and not partake in convention activities,” said state party spokesman Tenoch Flores. “The delegate has apologized to hotel staff and earlier today agreed to leave the hotel and forgo official delegation activities in Charlotte.”

Party officials did not identify the delegates involved.

  1. Drunken Dems must think they’re at a Tijuana Donkey Show. It is high time to elect adults and send the dems packing like worn out mules to the glue factory. God knows the economy can use the extra jobs.

  2. Typical Dems. I suspect it will get worse.

  3. If I were a DNC delegate, I’d be plastered, too.

    I can’t imagine how anybody would vote for Obama with a blood alcohol content of less than 0.25% (more than 3 times legally drunk).

  5. Wow, if RNC delegates had done something like this, not only would their names and state have been publicized,but their shoe size and sperm county would have been investigated too. Then there would have beren articles on this for days on end in every liberal rag there is. And Chris Matthews would have another tingle up his leg.

  6. Gotta make sure it’s the party faithful and not some RethugliKKKan plant, you know– the “little people” who vote for ’em multiple times (even after death) for benefits don’t need ID because that would be “racist,” of course.

  7. I’d like to find out who the clown is that got drunk and claimed he was a Congressman. Was it one of Tony Villa’s gang banger buddies?
