Dems were apparently looking for rough and tumble people to take over for placeholders this year. Because it sounds like they came up with a “bad boy” who was sentenced to hard time in the grey bar hotel last year because he wasn’t about to honor his “duty to drive with due care.”
Eric Bliss of Huron was named by Democrats this week to take over for Chuck Groth who withdrew from the Democrat’s State Senate Race in District 22. Noted in local papers as a Cellist, this Democrat also has a record, and earned a rep as the bad boy of the strings while he was in the vicinity of Lakefield, Minnesota last year:
Bliss, Eric B., Huron, S.D., duty to drive with due care, $150, ten days local confinement, one year unsupervised probation.
Jeez. How do you get sentenced to jail* (the paper says he was sentenced to jail, but, he may have avoided it) in Minnesota for nearly 2 weeks, and put on probation for a year for failing to perform your “Duty to drive with Due Care?” According to Minnesota State Law..
169.14 SPEED LIMITS, ZONES; RADAR.
Subdivision 1.Duty to drive with due care. No person shall drive a vehicle on a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions. Every driver is responsible for becoming and remaining aware of the actual and potential hazards then existing on the highway and must use due care in operating a vehicle. In every event speed shall be so restricted as may be necessary to avoid colliding with any person, vehicle or other conveyance on or entering the highway in compliance with legal requirements and the duty of all persons to use due care.
Bad to the bone.
