Harrison statement on Fossella's DWI and Arrest

via Harrison's campaign;

Driving while intoxicated is a very serious charge. Over 17,000 people die every year as a result of such irresponsible and illegal action according to Mothers against Drunk Driving Only 2 days ago MADD held a luncheon at which I was represented. I stand shoulder to shoulder with MADD in its quest to rid our society of this scourge and I certainly hope that all candidates and elected officials from all parties and all places would do the same. As elected officials and potential elected officials we have an obligation to set an example for society. Lawmakers cannot expect the people to follow the laws if they themselves disregard them.

I hope that what is being reported about Representative Fossella, that he drove while intoxicated, proves not to be true. As the facts come to light in the days and weeks to come I will have further comment as appropriate.
