3rd OWI for former Democratic Party spokesman
JEFFERSON, Wis. (AP) — The former Wisconsin Democratic Party spokesman is facing a third drunken driving charge.
Court records show Graeme Zielinski is scheduled to appear in Jefferson County Circuit Court on the charge Sept. 5. The 40-year-old Milwaukee man was arrested in June in Jefferson County. In addition to drunken driving, he was also cited for driving a non-registered vehicle.
Zielinski lost his job as the party’s spokesman earlier this year after comparing Republican Gov. Scott Walker to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
