Interesting how life works. A Tea Party Republican, Don H. Dwyer has made a name for himself by pushing homophobic initiatives in Maryland. He has said gays are a threat to kids and gay marriage would lead to homosexuality being taught in schools.
Don also tried to ban gay marriage and impeach any public official who showed any support for gay marriage.
Since he seeks to protect the children from the horrid gays, he actually put some in great danger. This weekend, he injured 5 children while driving drunk on a boat.
Maryland delegate Don H. Dwyer Jr was drinking with another man on his boat on the Magothy River in Pasadena around 7pm when his boat struck a smaller vessel with five children on board.Folks are calling on Don to resign.
Four of the children were injured with one, a five year old girl, taken by helicopter to Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
Two adults on the boat were unharmed.
The smash was so severe that Dwyer’s boat sunk in the river.
Dwyer later admitted to having a blood alcohol level of 0.2 – twice the legal limit.
‘It is true that I was drinking while operating my boat,’ Dwyer told a press conference outside the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore where he is being treated.
‘No one, no one, should be drinking and operating a motor vehicle or powerboat.’
‘I deeply regret my actions, and I ask for forgiveness from the public. My heart and prayers go out to the family that was involved in the accident, and I pray for them to have a speedy recovery.’
