Sen. Gary Nodler, R-Joplin, says it is too early to tell what the repercussions are going to be from Saturday's arrest of Sen. Chuck Graham, D-Columbia, for driving while intoxicated.
In an article in the Columbia Missourian, Nodler said, “To some extent, it’s up to the people of ... that district to determine what their values and expectations are of their elected officials. And that may vary from one part of the state to another. So that’s kind of up to the folks in Columbia to determine.”
Nodler also noted, “If he has a problem, I hope he’s able to deal with it, get some help for it and get it corrected.”
