3 More Idaho Solons Pledge Sobriety

On Tuesday, I wrote about the effort of ex-DUI offender Scott Andrus to secure promises of sobriety from all 105 lawmakers for the upcoming session. As of then, Andrus had 17 responses, with
13 vowing temperance and four offering equivocal answers. Andrus says he's received four more responses, three in the affirmative and one — Sen. Patti Anne Lodge, R-Huston (pictured) — saying she won't refrain from taking the Sacrament of Communion at Mass. That puts his record at 16-1-4. Andrus emailed lawmakers last week, saying, “I humbly ask that you pledge that no beverage alcohol will pass your lips during the 2012 legislative session. Please remain sober as you conduct the affairs of state”/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Would you more/less likely to vote for an Idaho legislator who took a sobriety oath?
