TMJ4: A jury found former state Senator Randy Hopper not guilty of drunk driving. The former state Senator beat a drunk driving case -- because his lawyer argued the charge was a conspiracy built on political revenge.
A couple of citizens tailed Hopper's SUV and called in a drunk driving tip to the Fond du Lac sheriff. Attorney Dennis Melowski argued those callers were driven by their politics. "Not only did they sign recall petitions, they circulated recall petitions," said Melowski.” Honestly, I don't know that I've ever been happier for a client. What that man has had to endure in the last 12 months is sickening," said Hopper's attorney Dennis Melowski.
Today offers up a whole new problem for Hopper:
WKOW: Officials say a former state Republican lawmaker was arrested Sunday evening for a domestic-related incident in the Township of Fond du Lac … Randy Hopper was cited for Operating While Intoxicated, 1st offense, and taken into custody for Disorderly Conduct –Domestic Abuse, Criminal Trespass to Dwelling and Unlawful use of Telephone.
In 2008 the Fond du Lac Reporter, highlighted that the wealthy senator had only paid Wisconsin personal and business taxes once since 1997.
