Got a Little Update on the Calif. Senator With a DUI
Matt | On 09, Mar 2010
California State Senator Roy Ashburn (R-Bakersfield) wants to let everyone know that he is gay. Umm .. ok. (Blink, blink .. pregnant pause). Duly noted. He shared that information on a central California radio show on Monday morning.
If you remember last week, we posted a story about Ashburn who received a DUI after swerving in a state-issued vehicle in downtown Sacramento. It was reported that he just left a gay bar and had an unidentified man in the car. It seems that Roy’s sexuality had always been a question in his district, so much so that one newspaper actually came out and asked him about it a few years ago.
Since last week’s incident, Roy had been on a personal leave from work. He returned to his post on Monday. Looks like his next step will be answering to the DUI charges. This should make his last year in the state legislature quite interesting.
