Maryland Republican Lawmaker Who Thinks Gays Are a Threat to Children Gets Drunk and Crashes His Boat Into Children
Don Dwyer, Maryland Republican politician and homophobe, drinks while out on the water then crashes his boat into a smaller boat full of kids.
I don’t think I need to add much analysis here, the hypocrisy is pretty obvious.
Dwyer, a Tea Party Republican, has in the past suggested that homosexuals were a threat to children and that same-sex marriage would lead to homosexuality being taught in schools.
Maryland delegate Don H. Dwyer Jr was drinking with another man on his boat on the Magothy River in Pasadena around 7pm when his boat struck a smaller vessel with five children on board.
Four of the children were injured with one, a five year old girl, taken by helicopter to Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
The smash was so severe that Dwyer’s boat sunk in the river.
Dwyer later admitted to having a blood alcohol level of 0.2 – twice the legal limit.
‘It is true that I was drinking while operating my boat,’ Dwyer told a press conference outside the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where he is being treated.
‘No one, no one, should be drinking and operating a motor vehicle or powerboat.’
‘I deeply regret my actions, and I ask for forgiveness from the public. My heart and prayers go out to the family that was involved in the accident, and I pray for them to have a speedy recovery.’
