Statements about Alcohol

"A majority of drunk driving deaths and injuries are caused by drunk driving offenders with no prior convictions."

Wisconsin’s criminal threshold for drunken-driving is "way out of line" with "states surrounding us," which "have the second offense as a felony."

A 0.05 standard for drunken driving means having a glass of wine at dinner could make a person drunk.

"Wisconsin is the only state that allows parents or guardians to purchase alcohol for their children – regardless of whether that child is seven or 20 years old – at bars and restaurants."

A bill supported by Gov. Scott Walker makes it "so that drunk drivers who kill have an easier time of it."

Outside of recall elections, "there's never been a public official removed from office" in Wisconsin "for anything but malfeasance in office."
