#TXLEGE: Notorious DRUNK Gets Arrested for DWI

"Woe unto them, that rise up early to follow drunkenness, and to them that continue until night, till the wine do inflame them,"
Isaiah 5:11

State Rep. René Oliveira, D-Brownsville, has been arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, according to authorities.

Oliveira, chairman of the House Committee on Business and Industry, was arrested Friday night and charged with DWI, a class B misdemeanor, Brownsville jail officials said. He was released on $2,500 bail Saturday morning.

"Last night I made a mistake in judgement, and thankfully, no one was injured. I sincerely apologize to my family, friends, colleagues, and most especially to my supporters," Oliveira said in a statement. "I am embarrassed, but grateful no one was hurt."
File that under least surprising development ever.  Rene Olivera is one of the biggest drunks in the legislature (he's up there with Geren).  Also, we'd never seen it before today, but apparently there's a blog in Olivera's district that covers a number of other misdeeds.

And yes, this is exactly the type of person Joe Straus makes a committee chair.

Bottom Line: It really is that sleazy....
