Dr. Benson: Re-Election Poster Child

This is just a scream.

The former physician accused of causing the crash that killed a pregnant school administrator, her unborn child and her 10-year-old daughter was charged with three homicide counts today and ordered held on $1 million bail

..."This court will not, it cannot, allow him to play Russian roulette with the lives of the citizens of Waukesha County when he gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle when he thinks it appropriate," Binn said.

There's no question that Dr. Benson has serious problems which (allegedly) resulted in three deaths.

But Binn is playing P. T. Barnum for the cameras and the HS kids assembled in the courtroom--for how many OTHER times has Magistrate Binn set $1 million bail for a serial DUI-loser? Certainly not the LAST time Benson was convicted of DUI--and earned 75 days (Huber) in slam.

Fact is, that EVERY serial DUI-loser is "playing Russian Roulette" with the lives of others.

Maybe Binn has decided to run for office and thinks that he can "fool all of the people all of the time."

But I doubt that he's that smart.
