Sorry, I'm not trying to get in a fight with you. It's just reading the present-tense headline made me think he was entering now.
Dieser Weg wird kein leichter sein; dieser Weg wird steinig und schwer.
Nicht mit vielen wirst du dir einig sein, doch dieses Leben bietet so viel mehr. --Xavier Naidoo
You know, sometimes I wonder if you have to constantly cut other people down so you feel good about yourself. Are you the classic self righteous with an inferiority complex type?
"As many of you know, this culminated in a serious boat accident in August when the boat I was operating was struck by another vessel."
his statment is technically true.
I guess if I was $H&+ faced drunk and cut across my lane sideways into the path of another car, the other car would be the one that ends up striking me.
Like all good politicians no need for him not to spin it and mention the details.

Didn't he also have a law enforcement officer with him on the boat at the time? If that did not cause him to exercise proper judgment about what to do when drinking, that what in the world would have?
And let's not forget that this is the same elected official that wanted to impeach another elected official.
Why haven't you taken a stand against Kumar Barve? He was convicted of a DWI and he's still in the MDGA.
What do you think should have happened to Barve? And how many children were injured in whatever drunken escapade he (?) was ~ according to you ~ involved in? You even took a cheap shot at the current~governor's daughter on this very forum before over drinking, and yet you give Delegate Dwyer ~ an adult and a legislator ~ a pass and accuse me of "cutting other people down"?!?!?!
Since the delegate supposedly admitted that he used alcohol as a coping mechanism and the problem was deemed serious enough to require a treatment program ~ does that mean that it falls under the prohibitions as defined in Maryland's Public Safety – § 5–133 or Public Safety – § 5–134?

LinkyIs he smug, ignorant, self-righteous, hypocritical, self-serving and a danger to public safety masquerading as a protector of virtue and family values or is Don Dwyer a decent, selfless, defender of the Constitution and God-fearing man who simply made an error in judgment and deserves forgiveness?...
…I don’t think I and many others would be picking on Dwyer if he were not holier than us. But he did name his boat The Legislator and put the state seal on it and then acted like a seal in a drunken state. Perhaps he should have called the boat “The Drunkinator.”…
…One has to ask: When has he ever represented his constituents fully and completely with character and trustworthiness? He’s mostly been an embarrassment in the General Assembly, but chalk up another one for his arrogance when he talks about his character and trustworthiness. Dwyer can ask for, and maybe even receive, all the forgiveness he wants, and perhaps even deserves, but that does not mean we should have him in our legislature, which reconvenes today.
Great op~ed piece!
