Rep. Tim Mahoney served one term in the House from 2007 through 2009. Mahoney ran for re-election, but his numerous alleged affairs led to his defeat.
It`s doubtful that Mahoney will ever run for public office again, if his constituents didn`t care for Mahoney the womanizer they aren`t going to be too thrilled with Mahoney the drunk.
Mahoney claims that he is innocent, he insists he did the right thing by pulling over. Mahoney may be a playboy and an alcoholic, but he`s 100 percent correct. The former congressman realized he was too inebriated to continue driving, and he pulled over so he wouldn`t be a hazard.
In Florida drunk drivers will be encouraged to drive all the way home, because if they pull over to sleep it off they will be arrested by a moron cop. The police officer should have asked Mahoney for dating tips, and given him a ride home.
