MADD Hypocrite

48-year-old Gainesville resident Debra Oberlin was arrested for driving under the influence after registering a .234 and .239 on breath alcohol tests — significantly above Florida’s legal limit of .08.

Oh, did I mention that Ms. Oberlin is the former president of the Gainesville chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving?

From The Gainesville Sun:

On Feb. 18 at 1:10 a.m., an officer spotted Oberlin driving erratically on Northwest 19th Street, swerving and crossing lanes, an arrest report states. Oberlin was pulled over in the 3600 block of Northwest 39th Avenue.

The officer wrote that Oberlin smelled of alcohol and had watery, bloodshot and dilated eyes. The report states that Oberlin told the officer she had four beers.

Gainesville’s MADD chapter existed for several years in the 1990s before closing in 1996 because of lack of financial support. Oberlin was the chapter president for three years.

If only there was some organization I could join to bring forth laws and a stronger Nanny state to prevent this sort of thing from happening? People Against Drunk Mothers Driving? PADMD?

We gotta think of the children!
