Updated 14 Jun 2019 130.9k views9 items
List of politicians with DUIs. Drunk driving laws get tougher all the time, partially because the safety of people on the road is a major concern for most voters. Politicians often throw their lofty weight behind legislation that makes DUIs, especially multiple infractions, have harsher punishments. However, this concern for the safety of their constituents does not always been that these politicians themselves care enough to not get behind the wheel of a car after drinking. Many politicians prove to be massive hypocrites by getting arrested for DUIs.
 
Some of the politicians on this list supported tough DUI laws, only a few months to years before getting arrested. A few politicians have multiple DUIs under their belt, while far too many get away with the charges by only paying a small fine and having a small probationary period. The politicians on this list have disregarded the law and put their own constituents in danger.
 
Which famous politicians have been arrested for DUIs? Which politicians have gotten away with it with barely a slap on the hand? Which politicians allegedly used political favors to avoid jail time? This list features senators, assemblymen, lawmakers, and other politicians whose drinking problems lead to becoming dangers behind the wheel. "Politician arrested" seems to be a news headline you see all too often these days, and in many cases its a story of politicians with DWIs. There are many celebrities with DUI incidents in their past as well, but this list is all about political figures caught drinking and driving.
