Advice to gubernatorial candidates: Don't Drink and Drive ...

... or you might get pulled over in Colleton County and get cited on New Years' Eve for doing so (and you might hit a bump and spill the drink).

According to reports, Dwight Drake was found guilty of driving with an open container in Colleton County, for which he was cited on December 31, 2007.  The charge of "0660-VIOLATION OPEN CONTAINER" is described as an offense which takes place in a moving vehicle, with a maximum sentence of "of not more than $100 or imprisonment for not more than 30 days", if the court should find:

That the accused did have in his possession any beer or wine in an open container in a moving vehicle of any kind while located upon the public highways or highway rights of way of this state, except in the trunk or luggage compartment.

    Earl, this blog post is a little lacking. There no reference as to how you came about this information. Are you digging around? Are you receiving tips? Maybe not all bloggers like to be transparent, but how about at least something that provides some context about how it is you came to break this information?

    Trav, who cares? The facts are the facts. This is a REPUBLICAN blogger who broke this, so he's not taking sides in that race, but I will bet you are a Drake supporter.
