Darrell Issa (R-CA) clears things up
Issa, speaking with reporters late Monday, implied that the issue of his gun conviction should be off limits in the campaign because it was personal and old. After the Michigan arrest, Issa was fined $100 and put on three months' probation, court records show. Issa did not mention the separate arrest in Ohio.
Criminal convictions are “personal.” Private, consensual sex is fair game. Got it?
