They Won't Throw Out (Jeff) Wood

Jeff Wood will NOT be kicked out of the Wisconsin Assembly for drunk driving.

Early today, the Assembly voted overwhelmingly to censure Wood for his O-W-I arrests, instead of expelling him. The Chippewa Falls lawmaker starts a jail sentence next week for an arrest near Portage. Wood also was charged with an O-W-I in Tomah last fall. That case is still in court. Assembly members were trying to wrap up an all-night session when the expulsion bill was brought up for debate around 6 o'clock this morning.
