Colorado Loophole Makes State Legislators Immune from DUI Arrest

According to CBS 4 in Denver, a provision of Colorado's Constitution makes legislators privileged from arrest for any non-felony crimes, including DUI. As we blogged about last week, it seems that more and more public officials are breaking the law these days.

It is disconcerting that a legal loophole exists that makes politicians immune from prosecution. Politicians should be more accountable, not less.

The Colorado legislature should take the necessary steps to remedy this injustice, sooner rather than later.
