Would you want this guy dating your daughter? I might add who gets into the car as a passenger when the driver is drunk?

Too bad that Governor Scott Walker’s idea for tougher drinking laws are not yet in effect.
Former State Sen. Randy Hopper of Fond du Lac allegedly refused to take a breathalyzer test following a drunken driving arrest Sunday, according to a Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office report.
At 5:30 p.m. Sunday, a citizen dialed 911 to report a black Suburban “all over the road” on Highway 151 near County Trunk WH in Peebles, said Chief Deputy Mark Strand.
“It is customary for a dispatch center to keep the caller on the line so we can get updates in real time,” Strand said. “We were able to get a deputy in the area. The vehicle (Hopper’s) got called in about a mile from Highway 23.”
Hopper pulled into the Festival Foods parking lot, 1125 E. Johnson St., according to the report.
There was one passenger in the car, Valerie Cass, 26, of Fond du Lac, according to dispatch logs. Strand said Cass called someone who came to the Festival lot to pick her up and give her a ride home. Hopper’s SUV was left in the supermarket parking lot.
You might recall Cass as she has made a name for herself among politicos.
Even though the state is supposedly broke, top officials in Gov. Scott Walker’s team were able to scrape together enough money to give a state job to the woman identified as Sen. Randy Hopper’s girlfriend.
Anything for a political ally.
Valerie Cass, a former Republican legislative staffer, was hired Feb. 7 as a communications specialist with the state Department of Regulation and Licensing. She is being paid $20.35 per hour.
