    By the time he's up for reelection this will be ancient history. He's run unopposed in some races, and this isn't enough to kill his career.

    And the party really defends their own here. One of our state senators- the GOP caucus chairman, got drunk and stole a vehicle, then crashed it.

    The GOP rallied around him for the most part and refused to take his chair.

    P.S. I am not a crackpot.
