For the second time since the Legislature adjourned, a Democrat legislator has been arrested for suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated. Rep Brion Curran, vocal supporter of the Child Genital Mutilation bill, was arrested over the weekend in Chisago County. Curran prefers the pronouns she/her, according to her website, or "Gay They" according to her Twitter account. She worked for the Chisago County Sheriffs Dept as a deputy prior to 2018.
Curran follows Minnesota Police & Peace Officers Association "Legislator of the Year" recipient, Dan Wolgamott, who was arrested this summer for a DWI after concerned citizens witnessed him chugging a bottle of vodka in a rural Minnesota liquor store parking lot.
Rep Curran has not made a public statement on the arrest at the time of this writing. The last post on X (former Twitter) was praising the Public Safety bill. Let that sink in.
