Don H. Dwyer, a tea party Republican and member of the Maryland House of Delegates who has said that same-sex marriage poses a threat to children, has injured four children in a drunken boating accident.

Dwyer was boating on the Magothy River at 7 p.m. Wednesday when he collided with another vessel with five children onboard. Four of the kids were injured, including a 5-year-old girl who was taken by helicopter to Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore.

Gay Star News:

Dwyer later admitted to having a blood alcohol level of 0.2 – twice the legal limit.

… Dwyer, a Tea Party Republican, has in the past suggested that homosexuals were a threat to children and that same-sex marriage would lead to homosexuality being taught in schools.
