  • Two political families have been hit by DUI arrests. The wife of Sen. Dick Lugar (R-Ind.) was arrested Wednesday after her car allegedly struck a parked car in the 7100 block of Churchill Road, near her McLean neighborhood. Fairfax County police told our colleague Tom Jackman that Charlene Lugar, 72, was stopped around 6:30 p.m. on Old Dominion Drive by an officer who noticed front-end damage on her car; she was charged with driving while intoxicated and hit-and-run. The senator's office released a statement saying they "are deeply sorry and embarrassed."

  • The daughter of Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) was stopped early Thursday in Hollywood, Calif., and booked for investigation of driving while intoxicated. The Associated Press reports that filmmaker Alexandra Kerry, 36, was released after posting $5,000 bond. A rep for the senator said she initially "was pulled over for an expired registration," and testing at the police station found she was "under the legal limit."

    I first saw this story through AP reports. My personal politics are in the extreme left - but fair is fair. AP notes Lugar is a Republican, then as to Kerry makes no mention of his political party affiliation.

    This is why the American people no longer trust reporters.

    Just an observation.

    Alexandra Kerry is a "Documentary Film Maker in Los Angeles" Who isn't.
