The cause of US Commerce Secretary John Bryson’s two hit-and-run crashes Saturday is yet-to-be-concluded, but a Conservative organization was quick to suggest, via Twitter, that Bryson had been drinking. The Conservative super-PAC American Crossroads tweeted on Monday morning: “@AmericanXRoads: ‘How does @CommerceSec have 3 car crashes in 5 minutes and alcohol NOT be involved? #Skills.’” Bryson hit two cars three times and was found unconscious behind the wheel of his Lexus and taken to an area hospital. "The investigation is in its preliminary stages," officials with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and San Gabriel Police Department said in a statement. Since the tweet’s publication at 8:02 am, American Crossroads deleted the tweet and apologized for failing “miserably” to make a joke—around the same time the US Department of Commerce announced that 68-year-old Bryson had suffered a seizure behind the wheel.

In darker periods, I would sleep with some guy in the hopes of making him love me. It would work for a couple of months here and there, but I could only keep ‘sloppy drunk girl’ at bay for so long.
