But this isn’t the first time Kleeb’s had trouble behind the wheel of a campaign vehicle.
Back in 1996 Kleeb, then an undergrad at the University of Colorado in Boulder, was working for ultra-liberal House of Representatives candidate Gene Nichol. (How liberal was Nichol? Even the Boulder Dems thought he was too far left! Just to give you a little more background on Kleeb.)
In any case, Kleeb was navigating the campaign’s 1978 Ford RV, “decked out in blue-and-white campaign banners” towards a bank ATM. And then WHAM! Kleeb knocks off a piece of the drive-though teller overhead.
(We’re not sure, but we’re guessing the RV looked like the one above.)
The cops show up. And Kleeb discovers that he can’t find the the ride’s insurance papers.
And Kleeb is cited.
So are we saying Kleeb is unfit to serve in the U.S. Senate because of his past and recent driving records?
No, we’re saying: should Kleeb get his license back in September, just remember that no where is safe…from the Hot Rancher Road Menace…
(Sourced from the August 12, 1996 Denver Post. We’re not sure of the legality of publishing the whole article, and we don’t have a link…)
And, by the way, today is the nine-month anniversary of Scott Kleeb’s website going up (from our notice, anyway), and there STILL are no issues or policy positions listed. We’ll keep holding our breath…
