Here's how to ruin your chances at winning a U.S. congressional seat:
Get arrested for driving under the influence and unlawfully possessing a firearm, with a female college student who is not your wife in the car.
Democratic South Carolina state Rep. Ted Vick, who describes himself as "businessman, a farmer, a pastor, a sportsman, a soldier and a state representative," was pulled over early Thursday morning after an evening of drinking in downtown Columbia, S.C., according to a police report.
Whoa! They named the party! Oh, right, it's South Carolina...
The State newspaper reported that Vick met the University of South Carolina student at Delaney's Pub in Five Points and continued drinking at Jake's Bar and Grill. Vick offered her a ride home, the report said, but his car was pulled over at 1:12 a.m. for driving 44 miles per hour in a 30 miles per hour zone.
After Vick refused to take a sobriety test or a field test, he was taken to a local detention center, where officers found that the state congressman was carrying a Kel-Tec .380-caliber pistol in his front pocket. He had not told officers about the weapon, and his concealed weapons permit had expired in 2007, the police report said.
The young woman who made Vick's acquaintance was not charged in the incident, The State reported. A graduate of The Citadel, Vick is married, has two young girls and was a lieutenant colonel in the S.C. Army National Guard.
Emphasis on 'was'...
"As a trained minister of the Gospel, Ted is a strong believer in traditional southern family values," his website reads.
To gauge how in-tune he was... we really need to know if he used the paper in the Cheech & Chong album and was it filled with Maui Wowie when he rolled and smoked that fat cigar! (pins don't count!) If not he was just another want-a-be light weight!
