The man California Democrat Rep. Katie Porter has hand-picked to succeed her in Congress has been sentenced to three years’ unsupervised probation after being convicted of DUI. Dave Min, who’s currently a California state senator, was arrested in Sacramento in May after a night out with abortion rights lobbyists, attracted the attention of California Highway Patrol officers by running a red light – while driving a Toyota Camry owned by the California Senate Rules Committee.
It gets better. While Min only admitted to having two beers over the preceding four or so hours, he blew a .15 (twice) and later breath test results at the station were .13 and .14. The arrest report states that Min is 5’7″ and 145 pounds, so imagine how much he would have had to drink to achieve that blood alcohol level. There’s no way one Coors and one IPA between 6:30 and 8:30 PM produced that result at 10:30 PM, so it’s apparent that Min lied to the CHP officers.
DUI Dave Min is an over-achiever. To be legally intoxicated when you take a blood alcohol test, you need to exceed a BAL of .08 — @DaveMinCA cooked in at .15! In fact he tested at that level twice! This isn’t funny, actually. This man put himself and others at risk. Totally… pic.twitter.com/wOLGjNF1zp

Dashcam video shows just how wasted he was during the sobriety test and the ride to the station.
There’s been no word from the California State Senate Rules Committee, which enforces ethics rules, about any negative consequences for Min, but that’s par for the course for that body.
Min reportedly deleted a tweet from 2020 in which he noted the gut-wrenching effects of a drunk driver on a Newport Beach family.
After last week’s mass shooting at Cook’s Corner, in Orange County, Min had this to say:
I can’t believe I have to say this, but the answer to gun violence is not more guns.
There’s a reason the United States is the only developed nation with anywhere close to these levels of gun violence.
More guns = more gun violence

Senator, would you have qualified as a “good guy” before you sat your drunk rear down in the driver’s seat of a car, put it in gear, and drove away?
Like Porter, Min is a law professor at UC Irvine School of Law. The rest of his professional background is rather scary:
Before returning to the Golden State to work as a business law professor at UC Irvine School of Law, I served as an enforcement attorney at the Securities and Exchange Commission, economic and financial policy advisor to Senator Chuck Schumer, and economic policy director at the Center for American Progress.
He also apparently believes he occupies some kind of moral high ground over Donald Trump.
Apparently, this post will be evergreen. @ScottBaughCA47, the head of your party has been repeatedly indicted, along with many other leaders of your party, for allegedly trying to overthrow our democracy.
Do you support Donald Trump’s campaign for President? pic.twitter.com/XZdokC5aj8

Min has also been endorsed by California Attorney General Rob Bonta, who’s already proven that he cares more about criminals than he does innocent Californians.
