He can flush that driver’s license down the toilet. Idaho Sen. Michael Crapo—a practicing Mormon—pleaded guilty Friday to drunken driving following his arrest Dec. 23 in Alexandria, Va. Crapo received a 180-day jail sentence, which was quickly suspended. His license was also suspended for a year, though he’s eligible for a restricted license, and he must pay a $250 fine and complete an alcohol program. When he was pulled over for running a red light, Crapo said he had taken “several shots of vodka” before failing a sobriety test. Since his election to the Senate in 1998, Crapo has built a reputation as values champion and social conservative.
