Since when does being a "health nut" preclude taking drugs?

"...and she and her friends spend all night putting cocaine up their nose and -that's- all right, but for lord's sake don't put any sugar in your tea!"

(or something like that)

--French & Saunders

You are doing a great job with this blog, Daisy.

You know, I'm from SC...so I appreciate getting to see some of the buzz from the old home state. Our home state never lacks for "colorful" politics.

Anonymous, have you heard of these incidents? Or are YOU Andre Bauer?

PS: any 'regular' person would have been jailed for these incidents:

(Columbia-AP) March 28, 2006 - Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer has been stopped at least twice for speeding in the past four months, but did not get a ticket.

WIS obtained a copy of Bauer's driving record. It show's that since 1997, the lieutenant governor has had two accidents, four tickets and one suspended license for failure to pay a ticket.

That does not include the warning he got in late December for speeding in Laurens County, or the time he was stopped and still not ticketed for going more than 100 miles an hour down I-77 in Chester County.

On the day after Christmas on Interstate 385 in Laurens County, a highway patrol officer pulls up on a 2006 BMW. The patrolman has clocked the car at about 77 in a 65 mile-an-hour zone. Behind the wheel is Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer. Looking for his registration, Bauer warns the officer he might have a gun in the glovebox, and he wants to know if he's being videotaped.

Bauer's explanation for going too fast? "Just running late as usual."

The trooper recognizes the lieutenant governor and Bauer gets a warning but no ticket.

Two months later, on February 25 in Chester County, two troopers target a state-issued Crown Victoria blasting down I-77 at over 100 miles an hour. As the troopers try to catch up, someone on their police radio calls to let them know the driver of the car is "SC-2," code for the lieutenant governor.

It is Bauer himself, using a two-way radio in his car. [Read transcript.]

When the car finally stops, one trooper pulls alongside, sees that it's Bauer, and waves him on. No ticket is issued, not even a warning.

Public safety director Jim Schweitzer says, "What we're telling our troopers is that we treat everyone, no matter their status, fairly and equitably."

The lieutenant governor has had at least one other run-in with law enforcement. In 2003, a police officer stopped Bauer for speeding and running red lights in downtown Columbia. Bauer was going 60 miles-an-hour in a 35 miles-per-hour zone. The officer briefly held Bauer at gunpoint.

Bauer said he was late for a Senate session and later, apologized, "I understand that as lieutenant governor, the citizens of South Carolina have elected me to a position of great trust. With that great trust comes responsibility, including holding myself to a higher standard of conduct which includes safe driving."

It is completely out of bounds to suggest that Andre Bauer has anything to do with drugs. He knew Thomas only through campaigns, and were not close friends.
Bauer is a health nut. He goes to the gym twice a day. He lives on nuts and veggies, etc, and rarely even drinks. In Charleston, he rides his bike to and from appointments. Anyone suggesting otherwise does not know the Lt. Governor…and is only engaging in vulgar speculation.
Partisanship ends when character assassination begins.
