Sun – When Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler arrived at a house party of teenagers in June, he pushed through the crowd, past youngsters dancing on a table and a smattering of red plastic cups. One of the revelers snapped a photo. As the night wore on, teens at the South Bethany rental home posted tweets, photos and videos of a bash labeled the “eviction party” for its intensity — a celebration where underage participants later confirmed many were drinking alcohol. Gansler, a Democrat who is running for governor, said this week that he stopped by the Delaware beach house to talk briefly with his teenage son and then left. He said he does not remember whether he saw anyone drinking. But even if he had, Gansler said, it was not his responsibility as a parent or a high-ranking law enforcement official to intervene. “Assume for purposes of discussion that there was widespread drinking at this party,” Gansler said. “How is that relevant to me? … The question is, do I have any moral authority over other people’s children at beach week in another state? I say no.” Gansler, in a two-hour interview Tuesday about senior week and the June 13 party, said, “My responsibility is only to my child. … Everybody has their own moral compass. Mine is to raise my own child.” He said firmly that his son was not drinking.
Hold the fucking phone! Look at this, an elected official actually making sense when it comes to alcohol. If I was registered to vote, I would throw it the way of Slick Dougy. It’s about time someone had the plumbs to say it’s not their responsibility to parent other people’s kids. Of course he “does not remember whether he saw anyone drinking”, he was blacked the fuck out. He’s not at beach week to babysit. He’s there to get his rocks off with girls who told him they were 18. Playing catch in the yard is so 2000 and late. Sure, he had to make the kid look like a fruitcake by saying he wasn’t drinking, but that’s politics for ya. I’ve never seen a guy look so disheveled after having a brief talk with his son. 100% mortal combat lock Ganz was wing-manning his son as soon as he finished snapping the pics of that girl getting double teamed on the beer pong table. I hear her dad lived a nice life. He will be missed.
