Senior Clinton adviser faces New Hampshire drunken driving charge

A senior adviser to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton was arrested and charged with aggravated drunken driving a day before the New Hampshire primary. Nashua police say Sidney Blumenthal was arrested early Monday morning after an officer pulled over a car traveling 70 mph (112 kph) in a 30 mph (48 kph) zone. Blumenthal, 59, is a journalist and former White House adviser to President Bill Clinton who is now serving as an unpaid adviser on Hillary Clinton's campaign. Sgt. Mike Masella, one of the arresting officers, told that Blumenthal said he got lost after leaving a restaurant in Manchester, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) away, to return to his hotel.
