Tom Salmon has been saying he's sorry for the past 24 hours.
The state auditor was cited for driving under the influence of alcohol late Friday night after police pulled him over for failing to use his turn signal.
Police reportedly asked him if he had been drinking and he readily admitted he had. He had celebrated with staff earlier in the evening. A blood alcohol test found .086 percent, just over the threshold
the state has said it is illegal to drive.
Salmon hasn't made any excuses for what happened. "I made a mistake. I screwed up. I'm going to face the consequences, take my medicine." His court date is Dec. 3.
Is this just embarrassing
or a significant political liability?
