As we’ve already mentioned, Mecklenborg’s license was expired when he was pulled over in April, drunk, pumped up on Viagra, with a woman half his age in the car.

During the video of the incident, he lies, again and again and again, to the officer claiming he isn’t drunk and hasn’t had anything to drink. He later tested over the legal limit for alcohol.

The police report clearly shows that his license was expired. It also shows that he claims to weigh 175 pounds.

Here’s the report:

And here’s a shot of Mecklenborg taking the field sobriety test:

Bad pants and poorly fitting shirts aside, I’d say Meck probably weighs closer to 250 than 175. Which puts his driver’s license info in the big-fat lie category.

It’s not a huge deal. No one is going to file an ethics complaint about him lying on his driver’s license info. But it does seem worth pointing out that Mecklenborg has a history of lying. And if he’ll lie about something as trivial as his weight, it seems like there’s no limits to his lying.

Speaking of lying without limits, we’re all looking forward to his court date later this month so we can see how well his ‘not guilty’ plea goes over with the court.

My personal guess: “not well”

    A drivers license has to be renewed, what, every four years?  Maybe he just plumped up in that time.

    And he accomplished all of this on Good Friday no less.
    But saying your Catholic was a nice prop to put on campaign literature.
    Guess he was day dreaming instead of paying attention to the gospel during Mass.

    Has this person resigned yet?

    Eh, I’ll give him the weight.
    There isn’t a woman alive who weighs what is listed on her license.
    And I’ll give you even odds on the hair color.

    Nope, nor has the Cincinnati Enquirer called on him to.

    The weight on my drivers’ license is, well, generously lean compared to my actual weight.  Still, it’s only off by 10 pounds (okay, 20!)  But not 75 – that’s a “stretch”.  Maybe we should have a scale at the BMV so that the clerk doesn’t have to ask in a loud, clear voice, “Do you still weigh 125?”

    To me, this is the part that sticks out.  He is “good Catholic” yet he chooses one of the holiest days of the year to commit these sins?  And I don’t mean lying about his weight.  He needs help if he thinks he can get away with all this.  Perhaps a good confession to start, maybe a some one-on-one time with a priest, but to me he might as well take a crap on the church if this is how he is going to live his life.

    Hmmm….so why not?   Is he a domino that if he falls, they all start to fall?

    I think you are being too hard on the donut.  Clearly he has gained a few pounds in the service of Ohio, but what GOP legislator is perfect?  As for the expiration date, I am sure that Kasich told him about the unmanly pink color of the license and that if he waited he could get one in “Viagra Blue”.  Since he was in Kentucky looking for a new car with a burned out light (they are so hard to find in Ohio) that day when Kasich called and told him that he was going to cut the line at OBMV, doughboy just said “I’m busy preparing for my escape week-end today, you go on without me, John; Ill misuse my authority there some other day”.
     
    Of course, I could be wrong.

  • I don’t care if he understated his weight.  What I care about, is that the jerk is trying to make it so poor people and minorities can’t vote in Ohio.  What is this, Jim Crow?  It is wrong!  And everyone knows it.

    As for drunk driving, he should have lost his license.  Does he have the yellow plates?  He should.  I am sick of one set of rule for the elite and another one for the other 98%.

    I guess you could say I ‘lied” on my driver’s license about my weight too, because I haven’t weighed myself in over 20 years.

    Don’t forget the camera puts weight on people.  🙂

    Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son……

    The fact is, shut up.  You’ve got nothing.

    You really should get a different handle, Gary.  The name “Ruppert” and the subject of  “newspapers” don’t go well together right now.  Someone may question your credibility.
