Last night California state senator Ben Hueso was arrested on a DUI. He is the fourth Democrat arrested or convicted this year. Democrats had gone five months without an arrest. That's an accomplishment only in places like New York state. Maybe Democrats will take solace in that this arrest is likely a misdemeanor, not a felony.
Hueso, unlike the three other Democrats, is up for re-election in November. Unfortunately, the GOP didn't field a candidate in this district and Hueso's opponent is "some dude" Democrat Rafael Estrada. Estrada had $120 cash on hand on June 30. So he's unlikely to capitalize on this and Hueso is likely to be popping the champagne on election night. I assume someone else will drive him home.
